IMAG to Date renames image files, JPG, GIF, and BMP to Date Formatted filenames, MMddyyyyHHmm_RID (R.I.D. Random ID). The dates are based on the Date when the file is created.

You’ll probably hate the way Camera application saves the image file, which was “IMAG####.jpg”. This kind of naming will cause a problem when backing up the image files in your PC/MAC specially when the file already exists in your backup drive but different picture, the only thing you could do is to rename the file in your mobile device. For example, you have “IMAG0050.jpg” in your mobile phone and you want to move that in your PC/MAC but a file “IMAG0050.jpg” already exists but has different picture? Probably the first thing you’ll do is to rename “IMAG0050.jpg” in your mobile device into something different.

Now to make things easier, IMAG to Date is created to help from that problem.

Really useful!

But is it possible to customize the renaming pattern? For example yyyy-MM-dd_HH-mm-ss

@TheRem
Actually, I based the location in registry "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Pictures\StorageCardP ath" thought it was the default Camera path but it turns out that the value set in StorageCardPath is the last location of the Pictures and Videos application path.

I have to look deeper in registry. I'll ask Resco Registry tool
