    Hello dear members,
    I would like to find a free software to add Timestamps to some of my personal and family photos and would like the software to identify and add the time and date the photo was taken onto the photo itself. (Most of the photos I would like to have Timestamps on were taken with an iPhone so they have the Date Picture Taken in the Details tab of the file Properties.)
    I would really appreciate your help.

    My suggestion is just try using GIMP. Then use the text tool to write the text onto the photo.

    From my understanding XnViewMP can do this. You will select the files necessary and use the batch convert tool. You can get the software here...

    https://www.xnview.com/en/xnviewmp/

    This is freeware for consumer, educational and non profit. If you are using this for business then you will have to buy a license for a whopping 29 euro. Sounds like you just need the consumer license which is free.

    *As a side note, make sure to make a small test copy of your photos when playing with new software. Better to use a test bed then on production while learning how to use new software.*

    Thank you so much for your suggestion I downloaded and installed the software but I cannot seem to find the tool/setting which adds the timestamp onto the photo.
