Hi
Sorry if I am using this thread but I have a similar issue.
I use a script to rename jpg/png files with the time date, however I realized today that it doesn't work on BMP, I've read that exiftool can read but can't operate with bmp files, isn't there any workaround for this?
Thanks

The reason it doesn't work with Bmp images is because there isn't any metadata in the format.  There isn't any date or time in the image to rename it with.
Troubleshooting hints:
* When posting, include your OS, Exiftool version, and type of file you're processing (MP4, JPG, etc).
* Double all percent signs (%) in a Windows batch file.
* If your GPS coords are negative, make sure and set the GpsLatitudeRef and GpsLongitudeRef tags correctly.
