    This will be a feature of your camera that you can turn on or off. It
    probably also stores the date along with setting used at the time in an EXIF
    file that you can read from the image properties.

    it is old kodak digital camera :(
    It cannot insert date but it saves date the picture is taken to exif (pretty
    sure of that)...
    It would be nice if date/time could be inserted during copying the photos
    from camera to my pc.

    I sometimes think this group needs a FAQ that goes like this:

    Q: "How do I....?"
    A: Use Irfanview.

    It seems unbelievable but Irfanview really is a panacea.

    In your case, use Irfanview with the optional EXIF plugin.
    It can superimpose the EXIF data on the display when viewing your images in
    full screen mode. You can also have such info added to the output when
    printing files with Irfanview. I prefer this approach as it doesn't alter
    the underlying image data.

    Go to Options>Properties>Viewing and put $E306 in the 'show text' box to
    have the EXIF date shown on the image during fullscreen mode. For a list of
    EXIF & IPTC field codes you can use, press the Help button.

    For adding data during printout, you need to repeat the process in the
    print preview.

    Incidentally if you use Opera as your web-browser, right clicking on a
    webpage image and choosing "properties" will reveal any EXIF data.
    Unfortunately it doesn't reveal the IPTC or jpeg comment fields, which for
    me would be more useful, since I add my copyright notice to the IPTC field
    but don't have any way of altering the EXIF field (Irfanview can read/write
    IPTC but only read EXIF, similarly my copy of Photoshop can only write
    IPTC, although I note that more recent versions of Photoshop insert a
    little advert for themselves into the EXIF data, which I find a bit

    What Picture editor do you use
    Their are scripts to find the info From exif and paste it on the print. Such
    as date, F stop and shutter speed ect Avalabile for PSP 8 onwards
