    Please find at the link below the program for renaming digital photo
    image files using date and time recorded by camera with the image.

    http://www.davar.net/MISCL/DOWNLOAD/RENPHOT.HTM

    Formal and easily achieved image file naming consistency simplifies
    organization and maintenance of large picture archives.

    RENPHOT generates unique names for image files recorded by a digital
    camera basing on date-time stamps contained within files. Generated
    file names are unique only within the given year - it's not much of a
    trouble to separate files between years, while this limitation permits
    to maintain the most universal 8.3 naming standard. Ideally a digital
    camera itself should do this job, but file naming seems to be of a
    little concern for camera designers.

    Program reads all not entirely digitally named *.JPG files within the
    CURRENT directory and renames those that have recorded date and time
    stamp (non-zero). Recorded date and time can be adjusted by a fixed
    value to handle the situation when pictures were taken in a time zone
    different from one where camera clock was set, or to correct error of
    the camera clock. Along with file renaming program appends records
    to the DESCRIPT.ION file providing initial description approximations
    (with optional global comment) that can be adjusted manually later.

    If it is preferable to use Long File Names instead of 8.3 names
    generated by RENPHOT, the simple DSC2REN program can be used to
    generate corresponding rename *.BAT out of the DESCRIPT.ION file
    (see link to it at the very end of RENPHOT page).

    Updates to the site can be easily traced by corresponding colored
    dates attached to key items - brighter colors indicate more recent
    changes (see more about it at http://www.davar.net/ABOUT.HTM#Dates).

    And run the risk that your computer will be corrupted by a virus or
    some worse malware.
