Group Actions

Rename camera files with thier date and time
Checkmark Downloads from cameras are typically named something like P00001.jpg This will rename the file to something like 2003.12.27-18.09.16.jpg giving the exact date and time the picture was taken, formatted to sort correctly in file listings. Works by reading the time and date information recorded when the picture was taken.
Dedup pictures within a directory or across directories
Rename a group of files by appending a unique designator
Checkmark Especially useful for internet downloads where the downloads can have the same names (for example 001.jpg). JIBS will generate a new unique name like 001zxy00001.jpg. The next 001.jpg you download would be renamed with a different number like 001zxy00045.jpg. So now when you drag and drop there won't be name clashes.

Checkmark Strained files are placed in Park for your perusal
