Version: 1.9.0 (using KDE 4.6.1)
I have a mixture of raw and jpg files from different cameras, which I would like to give a consecutive name along their exif date. I order them along their date, select them all and apply rename (right mouse). Unfortunately rename reorder the pictures that way, that first all raw pictures are renamed and then all jpg ones.
Original names Expected names Given names
(ordered along time)
cam-1.jpg pic-1.jpg pic-3.jpg
srl-1.arw pic-2.arw pic-1.arw
srl-2.arw pic-3.arw pic-2.arw
cam-2.jpg pic-4.jpg pic-4.jpg
Batch mode keeps the right order, but does not provide rename only. Applying a "dummy" operation (like add copyright) does not work for good reasons (no write to raw files). So the rename by right mouse click is the only viable option.
I'm experiencing the same problem as I mix pictures from different cameras, some with RAW+JPG capabilities, others with only JPG capability.
Original names (sorted by time) Expected names
PIC105.JPG -> PIC001.JPG
PIC200.CR2 -> PIC002.CR2
PIC200.JPG -> PIC002.JPG
PIC106.JPG -> PIC003.JPG
Same problem exists in Digikam 2.0.0-rc1
