If you check your manual or read the review here, you'll see that using the 4 way controller allows you to bring up more or less information about your photos. See the Playback Menu Options on this page:

Information about camera settings used (including the date and time a photo was taken) is included in the EXIF (a header in each image file). This information is viewable by many image editing packages.

Some software can actually use it for printing purposes, too (without the need to modify the image itself by imprinting the information on it). For example, QImage Pro can use it to print the date on a photo, and the software Canon includes with some of their printers can also print the date on a photo. I suspect that many other software packages can, too. Here is a link to QImage Pro:

If you want to imprint the information on the image itself, you can use some software packages to do that also. An example is EXIFER. Using it's Watermark feature, you can imprint any information from the EXIF on a photo (including the date).You can also imprint any other text desired. Here is a link to it (it's free):

If you choose to actually imprint this information on your images, I'd strongly suggest working on copies only. That way, if you make a mistake (or decide that the date stamp is unsightly for some purposes), you've still got your originals. I'd recommend doing the same thing for any other editing you do, too (never overwrite your original images, and work only on copies).
