I have been using ExifRenamer (<URL>) to rename photos by a two letters prefix (to put them all together in the "photos_2013" folder of the website) followed by a complete date and time stamp of the exact time the photo was taken by the camera taking it, extracted from the EXIF data resource of the photo file. It does not only allow me to order my own photos by date & time but, more importantly, it permits to order multiple rolls taken by separate photographers together, by the date, hour, minute and even seconds the shots were made by the various photographers. Quite handy. ExifRenamer was last updated in 2010, for Mac OS 10.6 (Mountain Lion, which is not Lion).

I want to upgrade to Lion.

Does anyone know if ExifRenamer is Lion-compatible ?

If not, does anyone know replacements ?

The suggested best replacement for my primitive usage ?

TIA

You seem a little confused.

1. 10.6 is Snow Leopard. Then comes Lion (10.7) and then Mountain Lion (10.8).
2. Lion is no longer available. You want to upgrade to Mountain Lion.
3. The program appears to run in Mountain Lion, and will therefore run in Lion.
4. Look at AnalogEXIF as an alternate if you still need one.

I have to point out that iPhoto (and I would imagine both Aperture and Lightroom) can do what you want automatically; they group photos into events by EXIF timestamp regardless of who took the pictures.
