-This page describes a solution to help organizing files with different creation dates. Practical for merging different series of photos from cameras with different time settings into one directory. By adding the date and time to the leading part of a filename, files can be sorted chronologically. Additionally an offset can be applied to the date and time to correct time differences between cameras. The solution consists of a perl script which adds the date and time to the filename, controlled by an applescript to allow easy drag and drop functionality from the desktop.\\ \\ To understand the functionality better, take for example the following file:+This page describes a solution to help organizing files with different creation dates.
