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!
BatchPhoto from Bits&Coffee is designed to make batch editing simple and efficient. It allows you to automate editing for your massive photo collections. If you need time/date stamps, image type conversion, size changes, basic touch-up, or watermarks applied to your photographs, BatchPhoto will allow you to do this simply.
The most convenient way to accomplish this task is to set your digital camera to date pictures at the time of taking them, in case the camera is equipped with such a feature.
Unfortunately this isn't the optimal solution, as there are certain drawbacks:
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 add a date stamp to a photo already taken!
So the best solution would be to:

Here's how easy it is to date stamp your pictures:
Once you've opened BatchPhoto, simply add the pictures you wish to date stamp. You can do this by using drag & drop, by clicking on the Add Photos button or by adding an entire folder or a folder with subfolders:
In the second step of the process you get to edit your images as you wish. To insert the date/time, just click on Add Filter > Annotate > Date. Now you can begin customizing your stamp to match your individual preferences.
With BatchPhoto you can choose the preferred date format from multiple options, select from nine preset positions or freely place the stamp where you want, adjust the size and transparency of the text, pick the font style and color or apply special effects like stroke, shadow and bounding-box.
In the third step is where you set your final parameters before the batch processing starts. Here you'll find options to select the output format of your photos, as well as their destination (you can save them on a local folder on your computer, upload them via FTP or send them via email).
And that's it. Once everything is set up, all you have to do is hit the Process button. BatchPhoto will then proceed to automatically apply your date stamp to all your pictures.
