Everybody owns a digital camera now-a-days. Digital cameras are available in so many varieties and are cheaper than anytime before. Different digital cameras store the pictures taken using a variety of file naming formats. Some use a format of DSC followed by some numbers and others similarly use IMG or PIC followed by a series of numbers. If you want to rename the photos taken manually, then it would take many hours if not days to complete the task. But you can use the free tool Name Exif to automatically rename all the photos taken by your digital camera in a few seconds.
