Script to Rename a Folder of Pictures December 16, 2005

Posted by Carthik in snippets, ubuntu.

Todd Slater posted a link to his script to rename pictures in a folder using the exif data stored in the photo. This will work for photos taken with a a digital camera, and you can rename all photos in a folder using a name, like “xmas”, the date, and then sequential numbers.

Try the script — the comments on top of the script should tell you how to use it.

Nice, very nice. Mix this with Krename and you’ve got pretty much all renaming utils you need. 🙂

Thank you as always,

I kept restarting the Postfix process and it kept not working.

In case anyone needs it, I modified the above script to work with jhead. My shared webhost did not have exif installed. You can find the script here http://www.thecarruths.org/?p=30
