TimeToPhoto: How to Add a Date Stamp to Photos Already Taken Automatically
Back in the film days, many point-and-shoot cameras had an extremely useful feature most modern digital compacts are regrettably lacking. The feature was called Quartz or Time-Stamping depending on the manufacturer. The idea was simple and clear: time-stamp every frame with the exact date the photo was taken.
Back then, only a few expensive models were equipped with that useful feature. Today, all digital cameras, even the cheapest models, record the date and time each picture is taken, storing this information somewhere in the file. While you can access this information from your computer if you are persistent enough, there is no way to tell the date when and where the picture was taken after it's been printed.
Fortunately, there is a perfect solution to this issue. TimeToPhoto can time-stamp your digital pictures completely automatically by putting a camera date stamp on your photos. Better yet, unlike stamped film, it leaves the non-stamped originals intact.
The fully automatic operation is possible as TimeToPhoto is able to access the hidden information about your digital pictures that is stored in EXIF format. The exact shooting date is stored there. You can time-stamp all photos at once, specifying your own font, position, and color of the date stamp. In addition, you can stamp pictures with extras such as GPS information or the name of the place pictured, the file name, or just about anything else such as the names and ages of your kids at the time!

"I just recently purchased a new Canon SD 600
Camera thinking it would print the date on the front of my photos. I am
using; a lot, a Sony SDS85 Digital Camera that in fact does imprint the
date on the photos. I personally love this feature! At any rate I find
almost none of the newer cameras do this any more, so I started looking
for some one with soft ware that would accomplish this chore. Well
waa-la I found you much to my delight and I downloaded the Trial
Version, loved it and decided to purchase same. Thank you very much for
being there, I know I will enjoy this software for years to come. "

time stamp software". In addition to being able to insert a date/time

"I bought a new Nikon D40 camera because I was
frustrated with the delay on my other camera. Unbenounced to me my new
camera does not put the Date Stamp on the photo. Having two small
children and taking thousands of photos I was really upset. After
having a conversation with Nikon help line and thinking I was going to
have to get a new camera, I found online the reference to TimetoPhoto
via a google search. Some gentleman had written in to a website and
listed TimetoPhoto as an option for adding the date stamp. I
immediately went to your site and registered for the trial. I have used
it for a couple of weeks now and love it. I can't do without it now so
I purchased it. All fancy cameras should let amateur photographers know
about Timetophoto. "
