Photog: A simple photo renaming application

For historical reasons, I tend to rename all the photos I take so that whatever prefix the camera uses is replaced by the date the photo was taken. This makes for a handily consistent naming convention which allows me to easily organise my photos regardless of whether I happen to be using an image manager or not.

I don’t do this renaming manually and have finally gotten around to putting together a Python script to completely automate this process (with thanks to Paolo Bergantino for this answer on Stack Overflow)

The script is very me specific, but it works for photos taken with my devices (Panasonic Lumix camera and HTC Wildfire running stock Android).

As ever, there is a project page here and you can find the source on GitHub. Feel free to take a look, have a tinker, or ignore it completely.
