    Hi, I'm new here. Basically I just updated note 2 software and still trying to work it out but I'm getting annoyed with the photos, you can see the date at the bottom left. Anyone know how to turn that off?

    Have noticed this on my partners Galaxy S3 after she did the 4.3 update when you take a photo it places this date stamp as you say down the left side of photo.

    Have just asked her if this stamp remains visible at all times when you go into the gallery to view photos and yes momentarily it does but disappears but this is on the S3..........so does it not disappear after a second or so

    Go into Gallery, settings and turn off "Tag Buddy", that should kill it.

    This doesn't work unfortunately (well, didn't for me anyway).

    Like someone else mentioned, on my Note II the date does go away after a few seconds. Annoying, but I can live with it.

    Tag buddy is off. I don't think it's possible to get rid of the time stamp.

    There's no way to remove the temporary time stamp that displays in the gallery. One of the many annoyances a user needs to live with on the new update.

    Don't think we can get rid of it until they update the software and give an option to turn it off. Well for now I'm getting used to it so it's ok.

    With the Note 3 you can remove it with 'tag buddy' in options, that's why I thought it would work on the Note 2, obviously its not an Android firmware issue.
