By default, PhotoRenamer 4.1 uses the mask %Y-%m-%d %H-%M-%S, simplifed as %DT3. Such a simple mask is sufficient to start renaming photos. Note that, by using this mask, the application renames the photos using the Exif MetaData if such data are available.

Please take the time to read the complete format specifications to build masks that fit your needs.

To fast track photo renaming, simply add a free text after the default mask specification and click on the Ribbon button labeled 'Rename All Files'
