Stamp – manage and sort your digital photos so they display chronologically

stamp small Stamp   manage and sort your digital photos so they display chronologically

Stamp. Great little freeware utility that lets you sort your digital photos by the date/time information embedded in the image’s exif data. Translated that means you can sort your photos so they display in date and time order on your PC, DVDs or other media. It sounds like a small thing, but it’s a real pain when you’ve come back from vacation with a shed load of images and the filenames messes with the slideshow order. Especially if the family is using more than one camera. Bookmark it!

 If you own a digital camera, you’re probably generating lots of photos and videos with uninformative filenames like “IMG_0002.JPG” and “MVI_0003.AVI”. It’s not easy to view these files chronologically, especially if you mix photos and videos or files from different cameras…Stamp extracts the date/time each photo was originally shot from camera-generated metadata, then adds a timestamp to the beginning of each filename. After running Stamp, you can sort your photos and videos by filename to view them in true chronological order – even if they come from different cameras.

    Where was this before?

    After furiously searching the ‘net, I had to create a Python script to do this, and it obviously isn’t as complete or friendly (or even graphical =P).

    Good find, Red.
