That’s a nice picture RS.
Can you say where it was taken?
That was taken about 2 pm on the 24 Jan 2010 at Chester Zoo. Have to say it took some digging but eventually found the photo and data
Nikon d300 camera
Nikon lens 70-300mm f4.5-5.6 G IF VR ED
shutter speed 1/160 sec
focal length 230.mm
auto white balance
Why don’t you use Bulk Rename Utility (BRU) to rename your photos to some meaningful name? You could automatically include the date and any of the EXIF data.
I just use the date myself for example for that photo I would name it:
100124 001 Chester Zoo Leopard
The first number is YYMMDD so the photos are in order but you could use any format you like including using the time taken rather than a number (001)
Well worth using and it’s British!
What a great photo, realspeed.
I expect you were glad it wasn’t looking at you like that.
Bruce I use Kuso exif data (different photo) which give more information. Also if I used BRU with the thousand of photos I have on computer I would be long dead before I finished

I am at a bit of a loss here but what does that have to do with the name of the photo file?
I think I found it
I’m on a Chromebook so the storage system isn’t great, never mind programs to add info such as this. I usually name it something simple and the date and put it on a flashdrive.
Yes, I realise that but I pointing out a program that makes the file name something useful and does it in bulk for many many files. In part it can use some of the EXIF data
Ahh I see now, sorry I misunderstood!
Bruce that is ok with a few photos but not the thousands already on my computer,it would take years to do
That’s actually the point RS, it does thousands in a few seconds - the clue is in the name BULK Rename Utility.
It even does subdirectories, adds numbers, dates taken, information from the folder name, EXIF info etc, if can’t rename all your photos to something meaningful in a few seconds you get your money back.
Perhaps you should stop trying to find excuses not to use it and actually try it. It comes with a good manual but takes a little while to get a handle on all its facilities because there are so many. I am pretty good at using it now so can help.
Even if you merely rename the file names to date and time taken it is far more useful than DSC1234
