How: Dating Digital Photos
Need suggestion on how to put dates (preferably automatically) into digital Photos.
I know that we and do it individually using Photoshop, but if the total number of photos goes into hundreds, then the manual process is very terious.
Or alternatively, anyone know how to run photoshop in batch mode to to the following for all picture files in a single directory:
1. Open file in a single predefined directory
2. Insert a new layer with the date (predefined) as text
3. Save file in Photoshop format and or JPEG (compression predefined)?

In my opinion, one of the advantages of digital photography is to NOT have dates or other imprints tarnish a perfect photograph. Meta information such as dates, aperture/shutter/focal length etc. can be tagged to a file and displayed externally.

inserting date manually using photoshop will make the file very big right?

Why not create an action that does it, then just open your files and run it on each one?
