renamepics is a script that uses the exiftags program to rename all JPEG files within a directory.
Version: 1.0.2renamepics project uses the exiftags program to rename all JPEG files within a directory to the date and time they were taken using EXIF information.
Operating System: Linux
For example a file named Sally1-birthday.jpg would be renamed something like 20051011-141023.jpg
This keeps all file names unique (provided you aren't taking more than 1 picture per second), and lets you tell when the picture was taken with a glance.
renamepics should be considered beta software at best, and there is no guarantee, explicit or implied.
Use at your own risk.
It is working great for me, but if it chews up all your precious pictures and you never see them again, I don't want to hear about it.
What's New in This Release:
· This release makes 'exif' the default program to extract exif data instead of 'exiftags', as it seems to run a bit cleaner.
· 'exiftags' can still be used by uncommenting in the script.
