Date stamp help

So, I forgot to double check my camera to make sure the date stamp would show up on today's batch of pics and after submitting the photos, they have been rejected. This has not happened in any of the 100+ work orders I have completed with this regional and I am being told that it is a requirement, no exceptions. As this has never happened before, I did not have a back up plan in place with date stamp software.

Apparently, even though under the properties data of each photo the date is stamped, this will not be accepted, per the regional. Don't see why if the whole purpose of the date stamp is to verify the date the work was completed, but that's where I am at the moment.

Can you guys/gals recommend a good,quick,user-friendly program? I took 250 pics over 2 jobs that I have to add the date.

Not sure what program you can use but I'd recommend a Google search. I'm a Property Pres Wizard user and it's built in to the software.

there is a program you can use for free one time I bought it, reads the date off unseen info from camera so long as the date on your camera was right (mine was set default 2003 a few weeks back) it reads that date, so long as date on camera date is right it will date your photos they would not know diff-there is no way I found to fake dates believe me I tried over the years just to save one or two 3 hour one way trips

I've used a program that will let you change the properties of the photo even the dates and times.

Faststone is good stuff.


I resize and date stamp all in the same pass.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

Fastone can date &/or time stamp from EXIF data if that's what you want to do.
