Option to set folder and file date to current time

Post by wabxn » Sun Sep 11, 2011 5:31 am

As I mentioned in a previous post, I work with 100+ subfolders of photos. I have to rename the ones I've edited to distinguish them from the others. The nature of my work does not allow me to edit these in chronological order. It would be most helpful if I were able to set current date and time for folders (and files) I have processed to spare me the effort of renaming them or revisiting jobs that were already completed. Another post related to unlocking files and folders will be submitted under an appropriate subject.

You means 'change timestamp'?

it wants to rename the files & folders according to (probably) timestamp (EXIF/eventually if missing from real file) from digitized/created/last modified date/hour/second

example: IMG00014.JPG ---> 20110912_10.24.59.JPG (renamed using YYYYMMDD_HH.MM.SS)
Imi este indiferent ce cred ceilalti despre mine, caci oricum fiecare crede ce-i convine lui si nu ceea ce e real, doar ca mi-ar fi placut sa ma vada asa cum sint de fapt, nu asa cum poate le-ar placea lor sa creada. Ei au ales deja...
