To better remember one particular event captured with a digital camera, it's
useful to see the actual date and time when the photos were taken. A convenient
way to accomplish this is to add the date and time on the picture itself.
So no matter if your photos are displayed on the computer, or in a classic
photo-album, the original photo date stamp will be visible!
The easiest way is to set your digital camera to date pictures at the time of
taking them, if the camera has this feature.
But there are some drawbacks to this solution:
The date/time stamp is not removable. So if you later decide to
restore your originals you can't since there is no backup copy;
The date will not be correctly applied on portrait photos, since
most digital cameras do not automatically rotate the portrait images
before applying the stamp;
There are no options to customize the stamp's appearance (font type, size,
color, stoke, shadow), date format, or position in the pic;
The good news is that the original date/time information is recorded by each digital
camera in the photo's metadata (the EXIF record) no matter the format you
shot it in (JPG, TIF or RAW).
This means that you can timestamp your images after moving them to the
So the best solution would be to: transfer your digital photos to the
computer, back them up, and then use a software program to automatically
date photos in batch mode.

Here is what BatchPhoto can do for you:
Read the original date/time information for every photo, from the embedded meta-data
record (the EXIF/IPTC records) no matter if you shot in JPEG, TIFF or RAW formats;
Correctly imprint the date/time on portrait pics by automatically rotating images
before stamping (the Auto Rotate filter);
Fully customize the appearance of the stamp by selecting the font type, size, color,
transparency, rotation, stroke effect, shadow effect, and even a background
Fully customize the date and time format as well as the placement of the stamp.
Select from a multitude of preset date formats, custom date separators, and to show
the time with or without seconds;
Correct the date/time if it was incorrectly recorded by your digital cameras.
It often happens that the digital camera has a wrong date set, and it will add this
incorrect date to all the photos taken. With BatchPhoto you can fix it by adding
or subtracting from a few seconds up to dozens of years;
Timestamp all your photos (JPG, TIF or RAW) in one session. One dozen or one
thousand photos is the same for BatchPhoto which takes advantage of multi-core
processors to greatly improve the processing speed;
Apply additional edits on your photos in the same session, including:
resizing, watermarking, auto rotating, renaming, touching-up, adding special
effects, converting to a different image format, and even uploading the processed
photos to FTP, Facebook, or Flickr.
A very convenient way to remember when a photo was taken is to embed the date and
time in the picture itself. Unfortunately not all digital cameras can add date/time
stamps on your photos and those who can usually display unattractive stamps that cannot
be removed afterwards. Learn more by reading the following article:
