Automatic naming of camera files

Hallo everyone,

 

does anyone know if there is a possibility to change the automatic naming of camera-files from dsc_xxxx.jpg to e. g. DDMMYYYYhhmmss.jpg?

Re: Automatic naming of camera files

Hi @JayDee1282,

To my knowledge it is not possible to change this as a setting for the phone.

However, I searched Google Play and found this app which seems to do what you want. I haven't tested the app myself so I can't say if it works or not, but it seems to have good reviews from other users.

Hello @Christofer

 

your app is kind of workaround. Don't you think about hiring this guy? He could fix your camera app once for all.
