I just got a Sony alpha 350. I am using Adobe Photoshop starter edition for printing. I can't figure out how to get the date which is listed in the property of each photo to overprint on the bottom right corner of the printed picture.

Do I need a different Photo editor software? Thanks to anyone who can help me.

Hi Dab,

May I wish you a warm welcome to the CameraLabs forum.

Housekeeping note: I've moved this thread to the Imaging Software section as it seems to me to be a Photoshop question rather than a Sony question. I've also deleted your duplicate post.

How many images are we talking?

Well, my wife would like the date on all of them. I would like to be able to toggle it off for my pics.

Do you have a trick if you are trying to put them on just one or two?

Hi Dan, there's more than one way to skin this cat. The one way is with Photoshop, although I've never bothered to look into it with that program, even though I have it.

The other is that most commonly bundled programs like Canon's Zoom browser EX, and Nikon's View NX, both let you do this. I know View NX is free to download, and will work with any camera/photos, but I wouldn't be surprised if Canon's app was free too.

Here's how you do it with the Canon program; ... tled-1.jpg

and with the Nikon one;

(you tick the 'print photo information' box and chose what you want printed) ... tled-1.jpg
