Printing past digital photos w/date timestamp

Looking for software that will extract the date timestamp from cell phone photo properties and imprint that on the photo, need to print the photos for a court eviction case.

Sorry, I was on the road when I posted this. I have photo digits taken from a Iphone and I would like to have reprint the pics with the date/time the photo was taken imposed on the photo field. The data is in the photo properties but obviously that isn't displayed.

Curious about software that might allow this function.

Not sure there's an automated way to do it.

What you're wanting to do is "superimpose EXIF data on image," with the timestamp being a part of the EXIF data captured in every digital image. (EXIF includes all sorts of stuff, like shutter speed, f-stop, and geolocation if the camera is capable of it.)

That search should get you a few tools that would work. I looked at one GIMP plugin, but it didn't grab the timestamp.

This one looks promising: http://www.gphotoshow.com/exif-iptc-...p#.WK4nMm8rKM8

Several links I found suggest ImageMagick, but I'm not at all familiar with the tool, and it sounds like you have to do it at the command line level.

Thanks very much. The cell taking the future photos now has a app installed the produces a date time stamp, I'll try the sw you mention on the pics I have on file and see what shakes out.

Appreciate it.
