Edit Exif:Model before inserting

Postby AlainCh2 » Tue Mar 26, 2024 2:59 pm

Hello, and thanks for any Ideas.

Having more than one camera, I want to insert the model as a suffix of my pics.

xxxxxxxxx.jpg >>> xxxxxxxxx_Zf.jpg <> xxxxxxxxx_Z30.jpg

The issue comes because the model is written "Nikon Z f" or "Nikon Z 30"

How to remove the "Nikon" and all the blanks in the Model string?

( I will need a step-by-step please )

Hi! could you do into 2 steps? Add first then adjust in a subsequent rename?
Or if you have a commercial license, you could do all with BRU javascript.

Yes, I thought also that a two-step would have been easier.

But no idea "how" to indicate that, and what the process will be on my side.

First step would be rename adding the exif info, then reset the naming criteria, and second step fix the NIKON text as needed.
Each stipe can be saved and then loaded from a .BRU file.

That last sentence is not clear... on how to proceed with a BRU file

a) I do insert Exif:Model
> apply

b) I do "Nikon Z f" = "Zf"
> Apply

c) I do "Nikon Z 30" = "Z30"

z) I obtain what I want but that need: one base step + one step for each camera

Correct ?

Hi, in Replace (3), multiple replacements can be done in one rename, see the help file for more info.

Code: Select all
Multiple replacements can be specified using the | separator. For example, Replace:1|2 With:3|4 will replace 1 with 3 and 2 with 4. Replace:1|2 With:3 will replace 1 with 3 and 2 also with 3. If you need to use | as a character itself for renaming, then escape it with a \.  For example, Replace:1\|2 With:3 will replace 1|2 with 3, the character | will not be used as separator.

Thanks.
That's useful!!

You mentioned BRU files.
How do I write a BRU file containing all the instructions to manage the three steps...
...
OR...

How do I generate a BRU File saving one / each steps?

Ok,
found my way .... Just:
select one single action > execute
Deselect
Select another action > execute

Fine.... but ....

BIG ISSUE HERE

I'm shooting Nikon and producing TWO files for each shot: a "NEF" raw file and "JPG"
Both contain EXIF data,,, but BRU read "model" and modified only JPG files

So I end up with the same image and two different names :-(

That's worse than renaming them manually...

Any Idea, please?

I was thinking of using "Sort&Select" on the Custom Column... but Alas

BRU <(EXIF:MODEL)> seems not to be able to read NEF's Exif :-(

I've found a stop point...

... Please help me out !!

Thanks
