PhotoFileDater V1.4.1



PhotoFileDater is a clever little utility that will enable almost any jpg digital camera photo filename to be revised to start with the date and time when the photo was actually taken. Thus a photo file with the name DSC1234.jpg, taken at 9:46am on 25 August 2011, can become 2011-08-25-09-46 DSC1234.jpg

The filename can be replaced so that the date and time text is then followed by text of your own choosing. For example: 2011-08-25-09-46 Rio April May 2016.jpg

The utility offers an efficient way to sort all of your photos into chronological order. PhotoFileDater is ideal for creating photo libraries for your digital TV, digital photo display unit, i-device, Android device or personal tablet. The utility can rename jpg files created by most modern digital cameras.

The utility is especially useful when you have photos from several different cameras taken during the same trip. All of those trip photos can be renamed so that the file names start with the date and time, and thus displayed later in correct chronolgical order.

The utility also copes with the situation where the cameras used have different time settings. Example: Your digital camera is set to your home time zone, but your smartphone is timestamping its photos with the local time zone where the photos were taken.

Remember that under Windows Vista and Windows 7, you may have to "unblock" the helpfile to read it. This is not a PhotoFileDater helpfile issue, but a restriction imposed by Microsoft's security policies. The same security restriction does NOT apply to the helpfile installed using the utility setup package.
