I recently purchased a 20D Canon EOS Digital SLR. I am attempting to apply the timestamp printed on my home deskjet printer.

Thanks for any help.

The Watermark feature in EXIFER can do this:

Yes. I'd make sure to work on copies (not your originals). It can use any of the information for the EXIF (a header in the images containing camera settings), including the date and time.

It's free. Just use the Insert Watermark feature, and you'll see the data and time options. In the "text to display" box when you use this feature, you can also insert extra text.

If you only want to use something for printing images at home, I think that QImage Pro can also use information from the EXIF. It's not free, but is a very good program from user accounts.

This software also has a dedicated support forum here.

Here is where you can download it (andyou can download a trial version to try it):

Scroll down in the forums list here, and you'll see the dedicated forum. Here is the direct link to it:

Your printer may have the feature. My Canon i960 printer softwaregivesan option of printing the date on the picture for printing purposes only- it does not stay on the image after printing. I've only used it to see how it works & it works well. Printing the date on the image itselfnever hasbeen anything I cared to do.
