Rename with CONSECUTIVE DATES, a batch of many files

Postby casevi » Tue Jan 21, 2020 9:24 am

Good afternoon everyone ...

First of all introduce myself ..

I am a fan of photography (from Tarragona - Catalunya) that, to try to solve a problem that I have with my JPEG files, I have decided to find a solution with this application.
(I don't know her absolutely.)
Also say that I do not speak English so all that I expose here will be a Google translation.
I have a problem with the ordering of the photographs that, once processed with Windows, I transfer to my Ipad ....

I transfer lots of photographs of 100, 200 or 300 units. They are photos of my trips ..
Although, in Windows, I modify (delete) all the Exif data of them and although I order them numerically in the order that interests me, when transferring them to my Ipad (by means of the Aiseesoft FoneTrans application), they ALL DISORDER WHEN PASSING THEM TO THE PHOTO ALBUM OF THE IPAD.

MY PURPOSE IS TO PUT THEM A CORRELATIVE DATE TO EACH IMAGE FILE to see if they are sorted in this way on my Ipad.
Does anyone know how to do it with this application?
Thank you.
Casevi

In summary ...
I know that, inside my Ipad, the files are sorted by FileCreateDate, and this date does not always match the order I want them to have ...

I need to be able to modify this date, FileCreateDate of a whole batch (with 100 or more files) and put them in a row (for example 12:00 h, 12:03 h, 12:06 h, 12:09 h, 12:12 h .. ...)

Through other applications I can make this modification file by file ...

Find a way to "automate" this change and be able to do everything in one process.
It can?
Thank you.

(I know nothing of Ipad...)

See what 8:Auto Date can do for you.

Type: can do Creation (Current) & also Taken (Original, Digitized) which it would pull from EXIF data.

Thank you for taking your time ...
Modifications are always made in Windows. The Ipad is only used to view photographs ...

I know what can be done with an individual file.
For example, change the FileCreateDate of 200 files (for example) and put them all the same date ...
No problem, I know ...

The problem arises when I want to make the FileCreateDate of those 200 files, for example, incremental in 3 minutes (12:00, 12:03, 12:06, 12:09, 12:12, 12:15 ... .. and so on up to 200 files)

Thank you.

Still may work.
Something like this:

8:Auto Date
Code: Select all
  Mode:  Prefix
  Type:  Creation (Current)
   Fmt:  Custom
Custom:  %y%m%d %M.%S ---

Thank you for dedicating your attention ....

With this expression you can "rename" by adding a date in the name ....
My desire is to" CHANGE" theFileCreateDate of the content of a batch of files and put it incrementally in 3 seconds (for example), it is not my desire to rename.

Thanks again !!

Oh.


14:Special, has Change File TimeStamps, & a Delta setting with that, but not an incrementing delta.


Pseudo-code:
Code: Select all
for %i in (*)
do touch %i
pause 3
next i

(touch sets the date to current, by default, but you can specify a date, or parse an existing date)


Suppose similar could be done with JavaScript renaming.
