About EXIF and IPTC tags

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by AKA gray asphalt, Jan 5, 2006.

  1. A free program called "The Rename" will rename your
    files with EXIF or IPTC information in batch mode.
    Exifer is cool but I don't know that it does this, this well.
    It will do date, size, camera model and just about everything
    else.

    I use it for date so that I can organize my photos in folders
    by time the pic was taken. It runs on XP and I assume on
    ME and maybe older because it hasn't been updated for
    quite a while.

    Use the "free form" modify mode which has a "pictures"
    subcategory with EXIF and IPTC info.

  4. Sorry, I'm not sure that it can redate. I use it to
    rename or add date to file name. If you are asking
    about Irfanview, I'd be interested to. I like that program.
    It does so many things. Have you downloaded the plugins?
    I think I remember that "The Rename" does change dates
    but only when you change the file name too. I'll look.

    Control-D, it's under the edit menu. And it changes attributes.
    Wow. I didn't know that. Cool. You have to change the file name
    though. I would add something and remove it on second rename.
    Little bit of a pain but it's batch mode so it won't take but a few
    seconds.

    What, you want me to do ALL the work for you?

    Select Batch, select Rename, select Set Rename Options, put in the Name
    Pattern you want - click Help for a list of supported tags.

    Specifically, setting the pattern to '$E306' (DateTime), '$E36867'
    (DateTimeOriginal) or '$E36868' (DateTimeDigitized) should all produce a
    filename consisting of the date and time the picture was shot.

    Pretty much every EXIF and IPTC tag is available, including some
    specific to Canon and Nikon cameras.

  6. Apparently Irfanview can append text to a photo.
    And maybe resize the photo with a space that could
    be dedicated to a EXIF date. That's kind of advanced
    stuff, imo, even for document management software.
    I've read there is a book out about Irfanview. If it's in
    English I might buy it.

    Thanks for all the work ;) but I want to change file date not the
    filename. Back to Exifer

  8. You can change just the date in "The Rename" but
    it takes two
    steps and I bet Exifer does some things "TR"
    can't.
