Organizing Photos with a little help of Exif

As a photographer I want to sort the photos that I took by the date I took them, so I can easily find them afterwards.

To make that easier I got myself the nifty exiv2. Like so (if you got a mac and have homebrew installed):

brew install exiv2

Then you can easily rename your photos:

exiv2 -tr "%Y%m%d_:basename:" mv path_to_photos

Check the manpage of exiv2 for further infos.
