Can you rename files based on metadata within the file?

Elarion

I take photos with three different devices at work for different purposes, a Pixel, a Samsung, and an iPhone. They all name their files differently. This isn't an issue when they're all in Google Photos, but that's never their permanent home. They all add different pieces and parts to the file names. I know I could run them through a renamer to remove or add certain parts, but I was wondering if there's a software out there that lets me just dump thousands of photos into it and have it spit out filenames based on the metadata of when they were taken. YYYY-MM-DD_HH-MM-SS (Year, Month, Day, Hours, Minutes, Seconds).

It would help us out a lot as we would be able to filter images in file explorer much more quickly.

Bulk Rename Utility is a program I use for mass renaming, and that should do exactly what you're asking for.
