Datestamp on pix from Panasonic LUMIX fx35

  john bunyan 13:19 03 Aug 2008

I read on another thread (Prince Midas re Canon G9) that using Canon software you can print the datestamp on photos. The instructions on my F35 Lumix are a bit obscure - looks as if you have to select photos on the camera and tell the camera to store date - these are saved as 3M pixels, which defeats the object of having a 10M pixel camera. Is there software to achieve this after downloading? I have Photoshop CS3 and Adobe Bridge.

The manual sholud tell that.
Outting date time in an image as a 'desktop' function is an interesting proposition.
Dont know if such a software exosist-a Google might reveal somethine.
The date time info is in every image taken and can be revealed my finding out how to reveal the EXIF info when the image is displayed in your image editor.
Irfanview will do it so will PSP X
Photoshop should therefore- seek a bit of PhotoShop online help if you cannot find it.

PSPX which is a close relative to PhotoShop reveals this info by the following;
Load an image/top tool bar/image/image
information/EXIF information.

Now to discover how to use this information in Photo-shop.
Over to you
