    Print date picture was taken on picture

    I have Windows Photo Gallery and Hp Photosmart printer. I need the date the
    picture was taken printed on the picture for a legal reason. How do I do
    this. I can get the picture on the screen with the date but it does not
    print.

    Thanx to all who can help me. Carol

    ==================================
    Maybe the following free software would
    be worth a try.

    FastStone Image Viewer
    http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm

    "Basic steps to add dates to image files
    using Fast Stone Image Viewer"

    (You'll have to experiment with position, font
    size, color and the various Variables to achieve
    the result you desire.)

    Tools / Batch Convert / Batch Convert tab...

    Check the box...Use advanced options...

    Advanced Options button / Text tab /
    Check the box...Use Text...

    Open the drop window..."Insert a Variable"
    choose...EXIF DateTime / Date and Time...OK...

    Add the files you wish to append...

    Choose an Output Format...

    Choose an Output folder...

    Thank you for the help. I actually copied the pictures to a different
    software and it worked. I will play with your suggestions and appreciate the
    fact that you responded.
