It's quite easy to do using the "Add Text" option in Irfanview, click here, bo19991. Open the picture in Irfanview, drag out the area you want to put the text/date, go to Edit > Insert Text into selection and there's an option in there to add the date. Save the new picture and that's it. And it's a free download.

Also you could include the date as the file name of the picture.

open picture in paint, then save as a bitmap, or jpeg

Hi bo19991, you have to open your picture in Irfanview first, then the option should be available.

Maj i have tried that all the pictures have changed to the irfnview logo but the add text when i open them it is still greyed out.I am in the right place i hope it says ;- insert text into image selection.

Just tried what maj has said and it worked fine for me. Don't forget to drag out a box where you want the text to be first. Also found that 12 point was far too small, so try something like 24 or 36 point.

You need to left click and move the mouse over the part of the picture where you want the text to create a text box. Then Ctrl and T (or 'Edit' >'insert text' ) will open the text editor.
