Rename photo image files based on EXIF shoot date (Haskell)


photoname is a command-line utility for renaming/moving photo image files. The new folder location and naming are determined by the photo shoot date information contained within the file's EXIF tags.

Getting source

  • Download the cabalized source package from Hackage
  • epub-tools is available for Arch Linux from the AUR
  • Get the source with git: $ git clone
