Auto-rename photos & movies for better organization.

Overview

ExifRenamer is a tool for renaming digital photos, movie and audio clips of almost every camera vendor. The program turns the cryptic file names usually assigned by digital cameras into meaningful dates which allows chronologic sorting in the finder and a quick overview of your taken photos. ExifRenamer features a lot of useful automatic and interactive features to help digital photographers organizing their photos.

The tool can perfectly be used as auto-action for Apple's ImageCapture - it automatically renames the new downloaded pictures without a single mouse click.

What's new in ExifRenamer

Version 2.4.0:
  • ExifRenamer is now a Universal macOS Binary and runs on the super cool Apple Silicon Macs and Intel Macs natively.
  • ExifRenamer did not update the creation date (if this option was activated) for the case that the file name didn't change during renaming.
  • Fixed a daylight savings time problem when handling RIFF/AVI file formats.
  • Fixed broken PayPal link.

AWESOME UTILITY! This app is exactly what I was looking for to better organize thousands of photos. And it has more filename format options that I could ever want to use. Very nice UI and has been working reliably for me every time. THANKS! Donate folks! Keep this utility maintained as new macOS versions come out.

exif renamer works also on Catalina !!! I've been using the program for several years and it works (almost) flawlessly. The only thing that occasionally gives problems is renaming .mov of .mp4 files . Changes the time by an hour, but that can mannually be resolved

ExifRenamer is an excellent utility for organising photos. Most people's are from multiple camera or mobile phone sources, and have completely different naming conventions. This product combines all these into a creation date format, obviously the choice for browsing or display. Again, love ExifRenamer!

I use ExifRenamer regularly, but didn't realize it hadn't been updated since 2010. I'm grateful both for the update, and for years of reliable performance, so I donated to the developer again today.

This was exactly what I have been looking for, and despite from what I feared based on some of the reviews below, it really works like a charm!! Fully worth a donation to the developer! What I find particularly useful is the function to reset the "created date" to the actual date the photo was taken (based on exif data) - I ran into trouble since I use the Mac photos app with the main data being saved in icloud, so when I export photos from the app (even as "unmodified original") the creation date is the date I opened the photo on my Mac (and hence downloaded the photo from icloud), rather than the date I took the photo. This caused a lot of hazzle - now with exifrenamer it‘s only a matter of dragging the exported photos with drag and drop to the exif icon, and the problem is solved. Thanks!!

For the life of me, I can not figure out how to rename several photos at the same time. I select them all, open with ExifRenamer and apply the name I want, but only one file renames. I have selected rename all I'm sure it's user error, but there is very little in the way of help for this app. I have the preferences set up (I think) for how I want it named, i.e. date first, then name, then time stamp... and I have to put in the new name (I'd like to use the function of keeping the same name) Anyone have insight into this or where to go for help. I've search Google and nothing on the creators website...

The developer has done a sterling job in creating this free batch renaming app for Mac. This has allowed me to rename all my photos to include the date stamp and country of the photograph. Absolutely brilliant! There is no way I could have organised my files without this app. Thank you! By the way, this is the customer file naming style that I have used, in case you want to give it a try: %P – %Y.%M.%D (%1U)%S%F Essentially, with the prefix manually set to "Cuba, Havana" that will rename the files from "IMG_8721" to "Cuba, Havana – 2016.12.27 (IMG_8721)". Once again, thanks to the developer for the sensational effort!

I must be an idiot but I cannot figure out how to use this software. It says to drag and drop the file into ExifRenamer. But when I do that nothing happens. When I open the program there is nothing that comes up. Just in the corner says that the program is up. Nothing else. What am I doing wrong?

This is a very useful little tool! I run all my photos through it so that there are no duplicates and so that the file name is useful. Thanks!

For me this program does not work. Very VERY VERY slow. After about 3-min only 10 files were converted. Not to say that every other file or so gave an error: "can't rename file ...". Did this happen to anyone else? I'm using OSX Yosemite on a 1 year old mar air.

Wonderful little program. Unfortunately, can't use it as a plug-in to Snow Leopard's Image Capture. Worked on Tiger as an automated task after import, but not in SL. Grrr. Please update!

What a fantastic utility. I wanted to migrate my photo management from iPhoto to an alternative application and I needed to rename my source files that has been exported to multiple folders due to duplicate file names. ExifRenamer happily worked through my folders and renamed the files exactly as I wanted with no problems at all. After this I will also be using it to rename new photos that I download from my camera.

Fine fine fine!!! It even works for CMYK-files at work for me - it doesn´t seem to change the file info so that I can change names of already printready files into my own scheme - and tousands of my digicam-photos are waiting for the renaming-feature of this App too - saves me much time - thank you really much for that. It would be fine If you could ad a filename without "PIC" (not pic001 but _0001) to save some characters in the filename)

Just what I was looking for. What better digital photo catalog program than your own native filesystem, organized in a hierarchical fashion with date and time for file names. Second the prior commentators opinion about donating to the author and keeping the spirit behind voluntary sharing of code alive.

ExifRenamer is a dream come true for anyone who deals with lots of digicam photos. it's extremely flexible and easy to use, and works great as a companion to image viewing/cataloging apps. It's also free. Pretty Much Perfect? software.

Very nice program - very flexible. Lets you set up your own naming format based on the EXIF date for photos and movies. Invaluable for owners of digital cameras which feature crummy naming schemes. Donate some money to this guy like I did!
