AutoRename Pictures

Recommended Posts

I try to find a way to put in the loop the function FileGetTime and to rename the file by the creation date.

For the moment the script is working, if I set the @YEAR on the script.

I need to get the @YEAR value from the file so I can rename file from the last year.

Tks for your help.

So since the year is not encoded in the old file name, I'm not certain where you are expecting to get it.

If you can use the file createion date information, see the FileGetTime() function.

The date and time that the picture was actually taken is stored in a data section in the jpg file called "exif". There is some discussion of reading exif data here in the foruns including a reference to a script by LazyCat to read it, but I was unable to find it.

There are lots of utilities out there in things other than AutoIt to read and write exif info (including some Perl modules).

It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

Ooh, I`ve never seen that UDF before, only the "Images size reader"... :">

Btw, nice work !

Not only, look for the JPEG EXIF info reader (here). With it you can get actual data when image was shooted.

This is my last update.

Thanks, you for your help, I get many ideas here.

I try to make my UDF simple and useful.

Pulling our information from EXIF, if the picture was modified is too heavy.

Therefore, here is my final one.
