Editing camera embedded data

  Cuil 09:18 31 Jul 2009

Unwittingly I left enabled the date and time settings on my Canon Powershot A7101S digital camera. The images uploaded to my PC for disc buring show the date and time which I want to remove as the pictures are important. Is there any software out there that will do the job? Canon were unsure

You could try "colouring in" the settings using a photo editing program.

I guess the date/time are shown at one edge, probably bottom or top of the pic - why not crop the pics to remove date/time.

Or, use a paint program's Clone tool to clone over the date/time.

Reading through the maual you cannot remove the embeded date stamp the only option is as Technotiger has stated. Use a pait program clone tool to remove the date/time or you could trim the date/time from thr picture reducing its size.

That was basically what I meant - I couldn't remember the name of the tool offhand, but I know I've removed blemishes/marks by using a similar colour.

This software (free) claims to be able to edit/delete the metadata associated with photo files. However, it doesn't support all photo file formats.

May be worth a try.

Also, Iranview (free) can be used to remove EXIF data, without losing image quality.

Have a look at no.8 in the list below:-

The EXIF data, though it does include the date and time, is not visible on the picture.

What Cuil wants to do is not change the data, but the image. This will have be be done, as suggested, either by cropping, or editing the image. It's probably the "clone" tool that will be needed.

Good luck,
