Hi guys,

first i want to apologize if these questions have been answered before, I've searched but didn't succeed.

Question 1:
imagine you have 100 pictures in a folder, each has its "Date Taken" tag thus using

<img year><img month><img day>_<img hour><img min><img sec>

to rename everything, except for example those that ate taken within the same minute but different second (they would give error for same name) . For those i use

<img year><img month><img day>_<img hour><img min><img sec> (<Inc Nr:1>)

My question is how can i make it so when renaming all the files, only those that are taken the same minute have <Inc Nr:1> at the end? (so i dont have to do them separate, and not all pictures have <Inc Nr:1>)

Question 2:

I have a lot of old pictures that i am renaming and 99% have the "Date taken" tag, but lets say only 2/3 of them can be renamed with
<img year><img month><img day>_<img hour><img min><img sec>
the rest act as if there is no date in the Date Taken field. Any suggestion why that might be? old corrupted metadata or im doing smth wrong?

Question 3:
When renaming batch of files consisted of pics and videos - pictures have date taken and videos have that tag too...but
<img year><img month><img day>_<img hour><img min><img sec>
obviously doesn't work on vids...what would it be for vids?

Question 1 is most important :)

Thank you in advance
