Sometimes when you transfer your images from a digital camera’s memory card to your computer you will notice that all the images have their names starting with DSC and sorting of these type of images is an uphill task. Due to this weird naming convention which is been given to all the images that are present in the camera’s memory card and you will not be able to sort your images due to which your basic tasks of classifying the images into various groups will not be done. But today I have got a solution to your problem an application named EXIF ReName. The application is a freeware for windows which can rename your images in the digital camera on the basis of the EXIF information of the photos.
