Rename image files according to EXIF date

This will rename all of your pictures in a given folder and prefix the date and time that the picture was taken in front of the file name.
Useful if your camera screws up your naming convention of your pictures, or if you want to simply organize all your pictures by date

yum install exiv2

cd to the folder with all your pictures that you want to rename
and type:

exiv2 -r'%Y%m%d-%H%M_:basename:' rename $(ls)
will rename to
