Hello!

Does anyone know another software for downloading images from my P880? Maybe with a function to automatically renaming the filenames (e.g. YYYY-MM-DD-HH-MM-SS) or so?

Thanks!

Jens

Jens,

I am not aware of any programs that let you rename as images are downloaded from the camera. I did do a search on google to see if there were any batch renaming programs and found this one... http://www.breezesys.com/BreezeBrowser/help/rename.htm

It's a start anyway. Good luck.
Steve

Hello Steve!

At least for most Canon models there is "CAM4YOU Utilities" which is able of batch renaming by date. But unfortunately only for Canon models.

But I will look at BreezeBrowser, thanks!

Fastest way is the manual way. Transfer your batch of image files to your PC (or Mac if you are of that persuasion) via your card reader, then use ANY image editing software, commercial or free, to batch rename the group. If you are using a Windows XP computer, XP also batch renames.

Good free software includes Picassa, Gimp, Adobe Lightroom (Mac only) and many others.
Cheap commercial software - Photoshop Elements.
Pro level software - Photoshop.

With EasyShare software installed I don't think you can use other programs or methods to download. At least that is the way it works with Kodak cameras with cradles. With EasyShare installed the images don't show up on a separate drive like most cameras and can only be accessed through EasyShare.

Since you are asking about other software I would guess you are able to download with other programs. If that is the case Irfanview will download and rename the images at the same time. And you can name them any way you want and can include either the current date or date the photo was taken in the file name.
