    Print dates on photos

    Hi

    Just wondering if anyone can suggest how to get the date stored in the exif file associated with photos to print. It would be handy for teachers using the photos for evidence of kids' progress, but ideally I wouldn't want it applied to all photos - maybe it could run as a batch process. Of course, I'd also prefer it if it was free

    Thanks

    You could maybe use this site to print off the exif data associated with photos. Jeffrey's Exif viewer
    Probably not the easiest way of doing it though for many images though.

    Don't forget the information has to be set right in the camera for this to work.

    Thanks guys. Pretty sure the settings in the camera are correct - the data is being passed across when we upload to the server, as when you hover over the file in explorer it tells you the date the photo was taken (definitely not the date it was uploaded). Seems like such an obvious and potentially easy thing to enable that I assumed I was just missing something basic...

    IrfanView + Plugins can print the EXIF date and time on the photos.

    Go to File Batch Conversion/Rename add all of your photos / set the output directory etc. check Use advanced options (for bulk resize) click the Advanced button, then...





    Adjust the font size/colour and position to your liking and then click the Start Batch button in the batch conversion window to add the date/time.

    Alternatively, you could use ExifTool and the batch file below to rename all of the JPGs with the date and time the photos were taken. The filenames will be in this format: 2013-02-07_07-30-00.jpg (unless you modify the red text).

    Code:
    @ECHO OFF
    SETLOCAL ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION
    SET SCRIPTDIR=%~dp0
    SET SCRIPTDIR=%SCRIPTDIR:~0,-1%
    
    FOR %%i IN (*.jpg) DO "%SCRIPTDIR%\EXIFTOOL" -d "%%Y-%%m-%%d_%%H-%%M-%%S.jpg" "-FileName<DateTimeOriginal" "%%i"
    I normally use the second method because it doesn't alter the photos.
