Would it be possible to have an option to force lowercase for both filename and extension?

Also would it be possible to have an option to rename to use 3 letters for the month e.g. "oct" or "dec" or "jan" etc?

Thanks

If this is very crucial for you, you can rename your photos using Jan, Feb, Mar. etc using Qimage and the Auto rename feature.

Hi Fred,

Thanks for the reply.  I wouldn't say its crucial but I think it would be a nice feature to save having to use multiple processes/applications.

Thanks

I'm not convinced  Shocked
As soon as you introduce alpha month characters into the beginning or middle of a file name, sorting becomes almost random.
The beauty of using yyyy-mm-dd at the front end of a file name is that list of image files are automatically sorted in a logical order. If you had feb, mar etc. instead of 02, 03, the file list would be all over the place.
I recently used Flashpipe to download a couple of years worth of images from my phone camera and used the folder naming of month number - name. In that way I have them all segregated by year and month and images in each folder are in sequence. I didn't need to have the month name in the file name.
See screen capture attached.

Hi Terry,

I understand your point but I have always used the sequence no from the camera as the first part of any filename and being from the UK like to keep my numerical dates as dd/mm/yyyy.

Here's hoping...

Thanks

Well, so am I from the UK , there are quite a few of us in this happy band.  Grin
I never thought of yyyy-mm-dd as a US thing, it's just logical. I believe mm-dd-yyyy is the US norm.

Indeed it is, and what havoc it can cause when dealing with passports. But, I think most people go with YYYY-MM-DD when it comes to things like this where sort order matters. The traditional ordering was from way before it made any meaningful difference. I've no idea why we do that, but since we write July 2, 2010, that's how we write it numerically.
