Hi again,

Try this:

As you can see I'm using the but I have added a hyphen (-) and then a custom date format. If you do not want to do this every time it is possible to change the default date format in the "advanced" section of the settings.

>> I'd heard good things about your product and just downloaded it last night. I like it. Unfortunately, I can't figure out if it can do the one thing I need. I want to rename my photos based on the Exif info. It can do that, but I have no options as to the format. I want to name my photos using YYYYMMDD-HHMM-SS.* or something similar. Can Flashrenamer do this in one pass?
