Is it possible to have the date format output for the %X-Date format in the Filename Mask Option be of the format:


I believe this is the International Date format:


I like this format as it is less ambiguous.

The current format is MM-DD-YYY and thus 5-7-2014 could be May 7 or July 5.

Thank you from a first time user. Great program.

Right now it's not possible to change the format for EXIF dates in the filename mask, but we will consider it for a future release.
Thanks for your suggestion!

There's a new version, which allows to customize the EXIF date format. When editing the filename mask, just click the %X-Date tag in the help window, and a dialog will appear to choose the format.

Download the latest version here (http://download2.obviousidea.com/light_image_resizer4_setup.exe) and let me know what you think!

Hi Phil
With the latest version, if you try to editing the filename mask with more 1 picture , you can't convert pictures because we have a error message. 360
I editing filename mask with %X-Date[yyyy-mm-dd hh-nn-ss]
If i add %X-Date[yyyy-mm-dd hh-nn-ss]%N=0 , you can convert but it's a bad filename for me. I haven't two picture with the same exif tag
Best regards and sorry for my bad english
