renaming without converting

Post by Heiko » Wed Jan 09, 2008 2:48 pm

Hi,
is it possible to rename pics without loosing quality / saving them again?

There is an option in XnView, which allows to define new filenames for multiple pics without converting them.
I would like to do a batch job with NConvert, which renames the files in that way:

old: PIC1234.JPG

new: yyyymmdd_hhmmss.JPG

y,m,d,h,m,s should be the time the pic was taken (out of the EXIF data).

THX for the support,
Heiko

Currenlty not possible but perhaps an interesting idea to have batch rename feature
