PhotoTalks: NameExif 2.1 feature request

NameExif 2.1 feature request

cstern on 4-May-2020
I have been looking for this for a long while. Being a mac user I have
had great pleasure of using ExifRenamer for several years, and it works
great. Until now I have not been able to find a replacement for windows.
NameExif can do this. Being spoiled with ExifRenamer, I miss a few
features Therefore, I'd like to suggest the following features: 1)
Drag and drop (d&d a file or folder onto the NameExif icon should
load the file or folder as done now manually. 2) different ways of
naming files with identical EXIF timestamp: in ExifRenamer you can
choose either to do like you do, or to add 1 sec to the name until the
name is unique. 3) Move or copy renamed files to a new destination
(optionally keep original untouched). I would be happy to share screen
dumps of the dialog boxes if you don't have access to a mac.

Hi cstern,

First, you will be successful running Namexif or HTTPhotos on Mac using
Wine, so it could be possible to run Namexif on Mac.

Regarding your suggestions, that's interesting, especially 1 and 2. On
3, I think you can quite easily first copy a folder, hence leaving
original untouched and then work on files copied.

Thanks for the feedback!

Thanks. I don't need NameEXIF on the
mac - I have EXIFrenamer for that

I need (and will use) NameEXIF on my Win10 box.

Looking forward to possible enhancements. It is already great and very

Oh, and one more thing: Optionally (by a
check box, maybe), it would be nice if it is possible to rename files
without EXIF info to the date stamp of the file. I like that NameExif
skips these files, but sometimes it could be nice to rename all files -
to keep the name structure consistant - then the file time stamp could
be used instead of the missing EXIF date.

And one more: maybe could add a
"Cancel" button to the progress window. If one accidentally asks for
renaming the top level directory of the photo disk drive, and includes
subfolders - there is currently no easy (graceful) way to abort.

Good point.
It is always possible to close the application but a cancel button is
more friendly.
