Hello

I've got 3 bought cams, sorry I gave up DIY years ago!  I have a problem printing.  On the screen I can see the pic with the data line at the bottom...date, time etc.  When I print from MS picture editor or viewer the data line disappears.

Incidentally I've got a white flash trail cam which gives super color pics at nght.  I get good pictures of wild boar and foxes, but deer seem to be spooked...do others find this?  I'm in France.

Any ideas?

Try mounting your camera higher and angle it downwards a little

Can't help you with the printing, I've always set a commercial camera to not show the information strip. You might be able to print everything by taking a screenshot of the image, saving it as a photo and printing that photo. Both Windows and Mac computers allow you to take a screenshot.

The deer in the northeastern U.S. don't seem to be bothered by white-flash, I've seen many more startled deer from infrared flash. Check my blog post -- https://forestandfield.blogspot.com/2018/03/from-fallen-white-pine.html for a sample of 31 photos of the same group of deer taken in four minutes with a white-flash camera. But you have a different species of deer and they may react differently.

They answered the best they could, no need for the sarcastic reply like yours if you really want help, imo.
Very rude imo and best of luck finding your answer.....don

Don, I don't think he was being sarcastic or rude, just a little misunderstanding about what Ken was referring to concerning the camera angle helping with spooking deer possibly. At least that is the way I took it. Maybe I am wrong.

Hello from France

First of all, I had no intention to be rude, neither to be sarcastic.  I'm sorry if I have caused offence.

I asked about printing images, and the reply received talked about the height of the camera.  It's rather like asking someone "is it raining?" and they reply "Wednesday".  Probably true but not a great deal of help!

Anyway, I'm still looking for an easy way to print the data.  I can do it by pasting into WORD, but it's tedious.

Kindest regards to all, DejW

I don't usually buy into arguments but I will say this. Yes you asked about printing BUT you also asked (a second question) about the white flash. The second question was answered and you "bounced him". He simply didn't have an answer to the first question but was being helpful by answering the second. 😊

Maybe try this program. You need to have the camera set to the correct date and time (not trying to be funny there but it is the part needed if want everything right). It is Nakood and the program is Y.A. Photos Date Stamper (can't remember if just googled Nakood and downloaded it and then picked the Y.A. Photos Date Stamper out of its drop down menu or not. Basically you would choose your picture you wanted and enter it and then you can select size, color, etc. of the date/time to be printed on it (can akso choose location to print it). All this is kinda fuzzy trying to remember as haven't used it in a bit. I don't have my data set to show but by having everything correct on the camera it will just take it from the settings (I guess) that are ingrained(?) to each picture. Believe you can even do this to ones years old.
If need more help with it just yell and I can see if can find it. Was a thread on here or hags about it.
