    Can someone show me how to add the date and time as text onto a photo taken with the camera and then save it to a file? I've got the taking the photo and saving it part, but I'm not clear on how to add text onto the image. Thanks.

    You have to use a canvas and add the pic and text to it, there are samples posted.

    I appreciate the concept, but what form is the picture from the camera? Using CameraEX class example, you come to the point where the photo has been taken with Sub Camera1_PictureTaken (Data() As Byte). I assume the image is this Data, but how would this be added to a canvas?

    Taking a pic with the camera (CameraEx) will save it as JPG or PNG.
