Hello,

at the moment their is no list of the variables in the help file. You can use this way:
- select alle files that you will rename
- right mouse click -> Rename or F2
- in the change field select \"Custom\", now you can create your own rename string
- click on the right arrow and you will find all the variables you can use

I think in your case the variables will be:
[%Y-%m-%d] [%{num:3}] [insert_your_commant_here].%e

Thank you Bjoern,
the first part with date and numbering was quite clear, but which is the command to get the exiftag "usercomment" in the file name.

Hello,

instead of \"[insert_your_commant_here]\" use \"[%P]\". Now, at the renaming process a new window will open, that looks like the image downloader window. Here you can insert your \"usercommant\" for each image separately or for all images.

Hope it is clear what I want to say.

I thin there is a misunderstanding

in my pictureds i have in the exiftag "usercomment" written for example the picture was made, for examle "Brandenburger Tor" and in another picture it ist "Rhein" so I want to rename the pictes to

2006-10-03 0001 Brandenburger Tor.jpg for the first exammple and
2006-09-04 0002 Rhein.jpg

ah ok, it was a misunderstanding, sorry!

in my knowledge it is not possible to use the exif data to rename the images at the moment.

but the way I showed you last time ( [%Y-%m-%d] [%{num:3}] [&P].%e ) will work, you just have to enter the usercommant manually, sorry.
