Date and maybe time

Return to Discussions

As is useful, but often overlooked or forgotten, is the date when the photo was taken. If at all possible it would be very useful to have added the date when the photos were taken. Even today, the date and any pertinent info is quite often not placed on the back of prints or in an identifier file of the pictures. Many years, or less, later somebody will ask about the where and when of the photo and that data will not be available.

A good idea. I should have done it.

RE:Date and maybe time

A few years ago, I was creating a photo history of my mother for her 100th birthday. The most difficult thing was trying to figure the year of the photos to put the in chronological order. My wife, bless her, always had the habit of putting the date of every photo we ever took. Now with digital photography, it is automatic. DesertRat

I've been going through tons of family slides and digitizing them. Luckily they have notes...but when I went to scan in all the negatives (few thousand), none of those have dates except for the year it was processed. I'll be able to narrow down the months and years for many of the photos but some will never have anything other than an estimated year. The things we never thought about back in the day.
