    Is there any freeware (or other) which will get the exif date/time of a
    picture and physically stamp it at the bottom of a photo. Ability to choose
    font size/colour and location of stamp would be great, also batch processing
    of loads of pics would be good.

    Preferably a stand alone program, but anything that will do this would be
    great. Can PSP8 do it (as i already have that). Can the batch script be
    used, if so, how ? (NOVICE !!)

    Try EyeBatch - it will batch-stamp just about anything you want,
    including selected or all EXIF data, anywhere on a picture that you ask
    it to :) It's great for doing almost any kind of automated
    batch-processing. Shareware available from Atalasoft (

    Thanks Matt, that is exactly what i needed !.

    Further to that, does anyone know of software (as above), but which will
    only put the stamp on the pics as i view them (in Windows fax & pic viewer),
    i.e. not 'really' physically put a stamp on them (incase i want to ever
    print them !), but just put a 'temporary stamp' on them as i view them. If
    you know what i mean ?

    Irfanview (

    In the normal windowed view, the EXIF date and time are displayed in
    the status bar at the bottom of the window.

    If you really want a temporary stamp over the image, go to full screen
    view (Enter key). You will see a text stamp overlay at the top left
    corner. The default text is the filename, I think, but you can
    configure this to include various exif and iptc fields. See Options ->
    Properties -> Viewing.

    Irfanview can also be used to permanently add the stamp, see the Add
    Text option. This can also be done in batch mode.

    Another good option for batch stamping is Exifer
    ( Look for the
    watermark option.

    Both these programs are freeware.

  6. along this line, is there a piece of s/w which can extract from the jpg EXIF and
    then rename the picture file with something like
    "2004-08-06 10-22-39_####.JPG" iow, the date picture was taken, the time it
    was taken and then the camera's cumulative photo number.
