How to apply time stamp as an overlay in Fiji/ImageJ


I would like to add time stamp on my videos as an overlay. I can readily add time stamps inside the pictures (destructive). The problem with that is, that I have grayscale video and I prefer yellow for my time stamp. I can add a new channel in yellow and add the time stamp in there, which is a huge waste of space in hard drive. Time stamp should be available as an overlay, which is more efficient in terms of storage and text quality (aliasing). Also an overlay can be any color, which won’t require additional channels. I was wondering, if there is any way of adding time stamps as overlays?


The Image > Stacks > Label… command allows to add time stamps as overlays:

Great, thanks a lot!
