Based on the number of otherwise good photos I see with the date in
bright orange numerals in the lower right hand corner I would guess lots
of people do. This may be the single dumbest innovation of  digital photography.


Turn it off. Do it for me. It makes me crazy. Write the date on the
backs of your prints with a cheap ball point pen if you need to, but
please turn it off before it’s too late.


A few years ago a friend went on, the trip of a lifetime to
‘’the old country’’ and returned with about a dozen photos she
wanted to have printed, matted and framed to hang in her home.
Guess what? There was that date on every one of them. Luckily she
knew a photographer, who was willing to Photoshop the dates away.
