Err... Sorry for the dumb question. First time I am looking into getting a digital camera.

Does the photos shot with digital camera have the date? What I mean is the for analogue cameras, you have to buy the "date version" in order to have the date printed on your negatives / photos.

Thanks in advance.

For me I normally rename all photos with the date infront. So when you send for print, the date is printed BEHIND the photo. I rather keep the front as clean as possible.

if you really need dates on the front, just use batch processing in photoshop. Shouldn't be too troublesome i think..

You are right, u can write anytihng to the photo, jus record into an action save it. Next time u need to add dates to many pics, just use one of their commands and they'll repeat the process for every pics in the folder.

thanks for the info.

but does that mean first, i have to upload the photos from cf card to my pc to "add" the dates? after adding the dates, i have to burn it on cd-r and bring the cd-r to photolab for printing? or is it possible to save back to the cf card?

many thanks ! :thumbsup:

YUP do not send your cards as the cards are more expensive than CDs and if there is any misplacement or loss, the pain is mininal. Also you tend to edit first before you send your photos to the lab. that is the beauty of digital photography.

I have an A75 which has similar OS. You can print the date to the printer. Under the print section of the manual, there is a "setting the Print Style" subsection. You can include the date in the printout.

Hope that helps.

after u edit, the camera will not able to read the pic, as they will prompt u 'incorrect jpeg format' sth like that...
but u got no problem reading from the CF card thru' PC.

correct, if u give them ur CF card, that's mean u can't take any pic unless u got a 2nd CF.

But for Canon A80 come with a Free 32 MB.
Can use this to bring it to the photolab for printing.
At least, if this got lost or whatever, u dont feel the pain.

But if u want to print alot of pic, then cut a cd-r.
