Digital Camera Repair Questions? Ask a Camera Expert.
Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your camera question.Removing a date stamp is not easy to do. It may require elaborate and specialized photographic manipulation software e.g. Adobe Photoshop.
But were the date stamps applied inside the camera? if so, there may be a way to solve that problem.
The official position of Canon is that 'date stamps cannot be removed'.
Do you have Photoshop, or similar Adobe image manipulation software?
The 'Content Aware' fill, in Photoshop, can help with date stamps and removing them. Note: work on a copy, not on the original on your camera's memory card... in case your use of Photoshop makes some mistake, you can go back to the original.
Or, you can try the Inpaint restorer tool, available here:
That may help!
Let me know, or rate my answer, please, if the above answers your question. Thank you! and have a great day.
Indeed, Mr. Harding, it is not a simple nor easy issue. Sort of blurring out the date stamp, if it is already in the pictures, is the best one can do - the pixels that the date stamp occupied and wrote over, are indeed gone. I hope that the advice I provided does indeed help with most, if it cannot help with all, the date stamps in all the pictures.
