Exiftool & TimeStamp Format

#1 Post by JPL75 » 19.01.2024, 09:45

In multirename, TimeStamp Format works fine for Exif Tags. However, I don't know how to make it work for ExifTool tags. Is there a solution ?
Thanks in advance for your help.

You can use ExifTool tags in the FreeCommander multirename function by defining the section [ExifToolTags] in the freecommander.mren.ini file. By default, the tag names shown in the multirename dialog can be selected, but you can modify the tag list in the [ExifToolTags] section of the freecommander.mren.ini file. Here’s an example:

[ExifToolTags]
1=Artist
2=CreateDate
3=DateTimeOriginal
4=ModifyDate
5=ExposureTime
6=FNumber
7=FocalLength
8=ImageSize
9=Test
10=LightValue
11=Make
12=Model
13=Orientation
14=Filter

The necessary tag names are shown in the viewer if “Tag title” or “Tag title - grouped” is selected in the “Show” field. If you’re still having trouble, you might want to consider contacting the FreeCommander support team for further assistance.

Thanks Ruby,
I have found how to use ExifToll and add labels.
My question is more specific : is there a way to use the TimeStamp format field that defines layout of dates. For the time being, I have to use a regular expression to use my own custom format.
Regards.
Jean-Pierre

I added for the next release the new option in the freecommander.mren.ini file.
In the section [fcFormMultiRename] exists the following line:

Code: Select all

ExifToolTimestampFormat=%Y%m%d_%H%M%S
You can change the line to adapt the format to your requirement.
