    Default Date water-marked - mobile phone camera

    Is there a way to have the date stamp on photos taken with mobile phones?

    Do you mean, on the image you see on your phone or on prints you do from your phone?

    Not sure about the digital image but I use (for SWMBO) a Canon Selphy dye sublimation 6x4 printer which allows the date printed on the photo. Very long life method of printing.

    There’s probably an app that can date stamp a image.

    Failing that you can do it when you dump it on pc.

    I wonder why they call it a watermark. It doesn't look anything like a watermark.

    A watermark is a figure or design impressed in some paper during manufacture, only visible when the paper is held up to the light.

    So where do they get watermark from?

    Courtesy of Wiki:

    A watermark is an identifying image or pattern in paper that appears as various shades of lightness/darkness when viewed by transmitted light (or when viewed by reflected light, atop a dark background), caused by thickness or density variations in the paper.[1] Watermarks have been used on postage stamps, currency, and other government documents to discourage counterfeiting. There are two main ways of producing watermarks in paper; the dandy roll process, and the more complex cylinder mould process.

    Watermarks vary greatly in their visibility; while some are obvious on casual inspection, others require some study to pick out. Various aids have been developed, such as watermark fluid that wets the paper without damaging it. A watermark is very useful in the examination of paper because it can be used for dating, identifying sizes, mill trademarks and locations, and determining the quality of a sheet of paper.

    The word is also used for digital practices that share similarities with physical watermarks. In one case, overprint on computer-printed output may be used to identify output from an unlicensed trial version of a program. In another instance, identifying codes can be encoded as a digital watermark for a music, video, picture, or other file.

    Watermark is just easier to say & everyone knows what is implied by that term.

    Being really pedantic : real watermarks arnt made with water , so cant use that word at all. Ever .
