Are the images still in the camera?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ni, transferred them to my desktop
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, they were transferred to my desktop before I realized the date stamp was wrong.
Expert:  Steve G. replied 1 year ago.

Then unless you have experience with Photoshop, the date is there to stay unfortunately.

With Photoshop or other editing software you could probably erase the old date and put a new one in.

Just out of interest, is there a reason you like the date imprinted on your photos?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, it was just on and I didn't notice. I do have Photoshop but not a power user. Can you explain?
Expert:  Steve G. replied 1 year ago.

Well, you can use an editing photo to obscure or erase the date and then put in a new one.

I'm not much of a power user either so I can't really give you detailed info on this.

Can you just not zoom in slightly and then crop out the date?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Possibly, I'll give that a try. Thanks
