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
Version 2.1.3:
  • Confirm window: The Prefix or Suffix text field is now selected by default if the user did chose this option.
    Thanks to Dirk Speder for this suggestion!
  • Fixed a problem with Snow Leopard's Image Capture.
    Thanks to Eike Schwarz for reporting this issue!
  • Fixed a very silly initialization problem which lead ExifRenamer to ignore the settings the user defined within the preferences under some circumstances.
  • Adjusted the PayPal-Button to support the yet-again broken language code setting of PayPal.
    I am sure this will break in the future, again...
    Thanks to Ronald Lim for reporting this issue!
  • Improved the support for .THM files. ExifRenamer no longer uses the .THM files exclusively for .CRW files.
    Starting from now, ExifRenamer uses the .THM file always if there is one.
    Thanks again to Ronald Lim for reporting this issue!

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!

I concur-this is a fantastic application and I was using it almost daily with Image Capture in Leopard, but since Snow Leopard's Image Capture has broken ExifRenamer's compatibility with it, I have to run it manually every time I download a batch of images. I'd love to have an update that makes it work automatically again.

To use this application under snow leopard the same way as before simply create a workflow in Automator: New plugin for Image Capture.
Add two actions to it: move files & open files with.
Save the workflow with a name without spaces oder special characters.
Now you can assign this workflow inside "Image Capture" and ExifRenamer will start automatically after importing pictures.

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!
