What is the video tutorial "Renaming many pictures or files at once"?

The video tutorial is about renaming many pictures or files at once. Specifically how to rename files from something incomprehensible to meaningful names; and this for multiple files at the same time.

Why rename pictures, video files or other files?

Surely you have noticed that when we take pictures with a camera; be it compact camera, dslr, mirrorless or even telephone, the generated files have a name like “P108493.jpg” or “DSG0985.jpg”.

These are file names that make no sense; which does not indicate anything to us without seeing what the file contains.

This is precisely why it is a good idea to rename files; and in order not to lose time we will rename them all at once.

I have for you two methods of renaming multiple photos

Method 1 of renaming group photos:

Even in Windows Explorer we can rename several pictures at once. All we have to do is select all the files we want to rename, press F2 (or right click / rename).

Then we choose a name that tells us where the pictures are taken and in what period. For example “Munte_Busteni_Iulie_2017”, and after I finished I press enter.

Later we will notice that all the files have been renamed; in addition each received a unique number (1), (2), (3), etc.

Method 2 for renaming pictures or group files:

Here we will use a free application that is very interesting; in the sense that it can extract different data from exif; data that we can display in the name we choose.

I found it extremely useful to choose a name that would describe the location; in addition to use the exact date and time when the picture was taken. Thus you can immediately find a picture taken in the morning on July 3, 2018; without looking at pictures, for example.

  1. Useful tutorial.
    It would be interesting and an application to organize all your personal photos in a way similar to what Google Photos does just offline. For example, say 500 photos taken on different days, and the software organizes them on separate folders for each day.
    Or all kinds of albums, for example to read the date when the pictures were taken and me to select the pictures taken between July 14-22 and put them in a single folder under the name "x" and so on
    Maybe you know something like that
