Rename Photos to Metadata EXIF dates

jhead can do it!

Its integrated in each linux distro's repositories, just install it with the package manager:

sudo apt install jhead             # debian & ubuntu style

Jhead can batch process many files at ones. This line renames all jpg files in the current directory to their creation dates, down to the second:

jhead -autorot -nf%Y-%m-%d_%H-%M-%S *.jpg

This line creates filenames beginning with a sequence number, then the date and a common description:

jhead -autorot -nf%03i_%Y-%m-%d_event-xy *.jpg

The result will look like this:


The EXIF metadata contains much more information, like camera model, lens, etc..
