Date stamping

My wife's cheap, end of range, lowest spec, Nikon point & shoot has the capability of stamping the time & date onto an image. Is it possible to do this with the K5? If not, can it be done in PSE for example? I know the date is in the Exif data but I get asked why can't it go on a print? She wants to do that for pictures of our granddaughter which she putting in an album.

Thanks in advance,

Howard

Hi Howard, If its to put on a photo for putting in a album why not do it in Photoshop or whatever you use. You can put any writing or data you want on the print that way.

Howard - I'm with John941 on this, as I detest the "dayglo-orange" datestamp on photos. Using PSE offers you the choice of positioning the datestamp wherever you want it plus, by choosing one of the calligraphic fonts, you can stylise the datestamp to look more like a signature on the image.

Thanks John and Steven. I don't particularly like the colour it uses either. I've used Photoshop to do it on a few images but being lazy I just thought that there was an easier way. I'll carry on doing it in PSE.

I wouldn't dream of underestimating her!!! She is very dear to me and the rest of the family, and definitely a lovely lady (aren't you dear).
