Missing photo stamp features we want

We also find some shortcomings of this photo stamp app. For example, batch process is not currently supported. The date & time library contains a set of preset text styles that you can easily apply to stamp date & time on photos. However it does not allow users to change its font style, color, size, etc. iPhone users can also make use of the built-in photo markup tool in iOS to easily add text, date & time stamp on iPhone photos. It is not as easy as the above date & time stamp app, but you do not need to download extra apps and you have greater freedom to customize the date stamp on the photos.

  1. Totally cheap Phone. I take pics of everything for insurance purposes. After my new basement flooded I realize no date on original pics. Now insurance will use this to not pay. You are tooo expensive to lack a time date stamp for pictures. WTH! Just venting because I know Apple couldn’t care less. Just sell sell sell. Why does the iPhone have to be so expensive at all. May Karma win the day.

    1. Hey Kim, I’m just on this site cause I need to find out how to add a visible timestamp on my pics for schoolwork. However in your case, you can use metadata only to determine when you took the pictures. Metadata is stored with every picture you take, so date, time, and location– I’m not sure of the exact process on getting it, but I know you can access it. As long as you have the original copy of the picture you took on your phone, you should be set. Hopefully your insurance company will allow you to submit later.
