Question: How to determine the date of an old family photograph?

Check for a photographers name or mark. Look at the back of the photograph or even at the bottom of the front. Is the photographers name or a photographers (or studio) mark present? If so, research into the photographer and when worked as a photographer can help narrow down the date the photograph was taken.

How do I find the date of an old photo?

Remember the date on the back is the date developed. Some photos taken with digital cameras and then printed may have date stamps on the front of the printed (or digital) photo. Take this date with a grain of salt. Just like the blinking clock on a VCR, many people never correctly set the date on their camera.

How do I add date and time to photos?

Open the Camera and tap on a random picture to set the path. Having done that, go back choose a timestamp style and select a position. Next time whenever you click a picture, the app will add the timestamp in a couple of seconds. Also, you can customize the date time stamp in many ways.
