you are welcome, thanks for the feedbacl. much appeciated.
My other app Picture Manager is probably also useful for you (-:

I haven't tried that app, but this one is great because I am sorting my media files by folders.

I have a folder for "cars" for example with +3000 files containing "jpg, jpeg, png, mp4, mov, wmv" formats. So this app works great for parsing by file name.

Does that "Picture Manager" have the ability to sort video files as well?

Nope, writing video metadata is very complex on Android. Spent several days already to get it working withou success yet.
Picture Manager can rename your files based on exif data, or sort your files into dated folders or folders named by exif attributes and lots more.

Version 1.31.x available

This version has a a great new feature. It can now fix the order of facebook and instagram galleries.
Facebook for whatever reason uses the "create date" from the mediastore to order their images in their gallery, instead the modified date like every other gallery app.
The issue with that is, that the create date is immutable, means that 3rd party apps can't modify it. That's why my app in earlier versions didn't work with facebooks gallery.
I found a workaround by sorting the images and then rescan them to the media store in the correct order.


Full list of changes:
  • Added compatibility option for facebook/instagramm galleries etc.
  • Some XIAOMI devices are compatible again after Xiaomi pushed out a broken update
  • Updated portuguese translations

    About Image and Video Date Fixer:
    Ever copied images from one phone to another, or from an external storage to your phone and ended up with a messed up timeline in your qgallery?
    This happens because the file modification dates of your images have now the date the images were copied at.

    Here comes Image and Video Date Fixer to the rescue. It can read the creation date of images and files from its metadata and set that as file modification date.
    In case your images do not contain EXIF Metadata, but contains the date in the filename itself, Image and Video Date Fixer can even parse filenames to extract the date and set it as EXIF date attribute. For videos only the file modification date will be set based on the dat.


    Premium Version:
    The free version allows to process 20 files per batch.
    If you want to process more files per batch you can buy the premium version via an in app purchase.


    50 premium keys are given out already. I will probably give out more in the telegram chat.
    Giving away 50 free premium keys here on xda, if you PM me your activation code (Open the left sidebar menu -> Unlock Premium)



    Picture Manager

    This feature is also part of my app Picture Manager, decided to duplicate the features into a seperate app, since a lot of users searched for such feature for ages.
    Should help people finding this app/feature easier in the playstore.

    Do you know any application that does the same thing in Windows?

    There are plenty. I use cPicture to manage my collection. It is the JPEG9 reference app, and it is also great for lossless functions. You can download it for free: cpicture.thecloudsite.net
