What do you think is awkward about renaming images? I rename all of my
images to this format CameraModel_YYYYMMDDTHHMMSS_XX

That way I get what camera model, the year and time, and XX is a
serial number usually only 00 but for the times when I take multiple
images in the same second it gets incrimented. Id be happy to share my
script if you like, but digikam can do similar renaming.
