Rename iPhone images to use date/time
Charles Roth, 4 Oct 2017
It's incredibly DUMB that the iPhone camera app names its
images IMG_0001, 0002, etc.
But what else can one expect from the Most Walled Garden in the world?
II. A Hack
I save our best iPhone and Android photos to an on-line gallery based on
So I wrote a tiny shell script to extract the date and time from the
image meta-data, and rename the image files accordingly.
This script should work on MacOS, Windows with
, or (of course) Linux.
You can download the script
and do whatever you like with it (just keep the attribution).
Feedback and improvements are welcome.
