Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera ?

I can not get the date to show up on the photos. It does show up on the display but not on the photos.

The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.
