How can I change the time I have in my file name to standard time. My new name rule is
<IMG Month>/<IMG Day>/<IMG Year> - <IMG Hour>.<IMG Min>-
and of course it shows as 02/17/2015 - 13.42
I am trying to figure out how to have it standard with AM & PM instead of military hour. Is this possible and if so how can I do this? Thanks in advance!

Advanced Renamer has no support for 12-hour time. Usually when people want to add a timestamp to filenames it is to better sort the files. For that it is ideal to add a timestamp in this format <Year>-<Month>-<Day> <Hour>-<Min>. For sorting, 12-hour time doesn't work very well.

I might be able to add an option for using 12-hour time. You will have to lookout for the next release of Advanced Renamer, which is due within the next week or so.

I have always been puzzled by the 12-hour time. Why is it still being used in some parts of the world? Here in Denmark, the 12-hour time is only used in the spoken language, never in writing.
