This script integrates ExifTool command tool in order to extract EXIF/IPTC/XMP tags from many types of images. CRW, CR2, RAW, HEIF/HEVC images are also supported.
exiftool.exein ReNamer's folder.
Download and extract the ExifTool package into ReNamer's folder.
Note that the ExifTool for Windows package contains a file named
exiftool(-k).exe, which must be renamed to
exiftool.exe before using in ReNamer. Otherwise, the command line tool interprets the
(-k) text as a trigger to wait for the user to press the ENTER key at the end of the output, which ReNamer won't be able to do and the application will just freeze.

Replace the filename with the "Date/Time Original" meta tag.
The meta tag output is used "as is" and it often contains invalid filename characters, so you may need to use additional rules to clean up the filename afterwards.
You can check the full list of available meta tags by running
exiftool.exe <file> comamnd and then you can modify the TAG constant to work with any of the listed tags.
- Tested with ReNamer 7.1 and ExifTool 11.81.
