    Does anyone know of a program that will read the time and date off a JPG
    file and put it on the image itself?
    I do not want to print, but save the image as a JPG file.
    Thankyou in advance.

    "Almost all digital cameras store extra information, called metadata,
    with your pictures. The extra information captured by your camera is
    called EXIF data, which stands for Exchangeable Image File Format. While
    most current photo manipulation software supports the reading of this
    information, there are many specialized tools for reading, editing,
    extracting and converting EXIF information.

    "You can also store information in your pictures using other types of
    metadata. Two of the most commonly used formats of metadata for photos
    are: IPTC, the standard developed by the International Press
    Telecommunications Council; and XMP, the "Extensible Metadata Platform"
    developed by Adobe. The software listed here is designed for working
    with all types of metadata including EXIF, IPTC, and XMP."

    Follow the link for a list of EXIF data manipulation software for
    Windows, Mac, and Linux. None of them seem to do exactly what you are
    looking for, but the ones which extract EXIF data and write it to a
    database or spreadsheet file could be used in a Photoshop action.

    Hope this helps,

    I found this program http://www.irfanview.com which does EXACTLY what I
    It will date stamp the picture with either the file time and date, or from
    the EXIF data.
    Thankyou for your help.
