Is there any way to show the name of the oldest and the newest image in the current folder with ExifTool, based on the shooting date?


You didn't mention what OS you're using, but in a Windows Powershell you could do something like this:

exiftool -filename -fileorder datetimeoriginal DIR | select -first 2 -last 4

  • Whoops, sorry about that, Windows 7 it is. I'll try it.

(i.e. sort by shooting date and show oldest and newest images' name of file)

? then look at the top and bottom entries in the sort.

  • I cannot. There are too many images and the cmd's buffer is not that large.
