Help changing the date format

Postby dox » Mon Aug 15, 2016 2:08 am

Hi

im a bit stuck although i feel like i might be missing something obviously so forgive me if im been a dumbass.

i currently have 20,000 photos with this filename syntax after various cleanup and renaming from date taken from EXIF im left with

2004-01-20 12-44-51.jpg

but i need to rename it so it matches the following

2004-01-20 12.44.51.jpg

essentially i want to have the HH.MM.SS using a . seperator instead of a -

unless im missing something, using replace, you cant tell it from what position to start from?

thanks
