I'll take a look at this, but right now I'm busy rebuilding my wife's set of 
pictures for her digital frame.

I notice that that one of the first applications for krename is to put the 
taken date on a set of photo files. Well, I already wrote a script to do 
that! It takes raw or jpg files as copied from the camera, uses the ls 
command with some parameters to get the date and time the shutter release was 
pressed, and renames the files with that information. Works like a charm!

Now, what I could probably use krename for, if I want to be pedantic, is to 
rename one set of pictures I took when I forgot to alter the time on the 
clock to BST.

Just realised why I'm getting two copies :-)
