How to Remove a Date Stamp from a Photo Without Photoshop

Went out to take some photos and forgot to disable the timestamp feature on your camera? Have a few old digital photos to share but they’re spoiled with the date caption? If that sounds familiar to you, then let’s see how to remove a date stamp from a photo. Yes, in some cases, the timestamp works great, like for photo management, but right until you want to print or share the marked pictures.

If you start googling, you’ll find many stamp removers offering complex and cumbersome actions. Like Photoshop - a very popular but hard-to-grasp image editor by Adobe. Well, don’t get upset yet.
