ExifTool

ExifTool tags window

ExifTool is a program by Phil Harvey (www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/) distributed with Advanced Renamer to create support for more file formats like raw camera files, documents, zip files etc. ExifTool supports both more formats and more tags which can be used to mass rename files through Advanced Renamer.

Tag values can get investigated by selecting a file and clicking the ExifTool button in the Fileinfo box. From here you can copy a <ExifTool:> tag and paste it into a method of choice.
