Not applicable if there is no exif data in the photo file ... fairly
common scenario, I might add, when photos are scanned from film.
And besides, even if Exif meta data is present, further hack is needed
to put all the photos in a folder with a name based on the date when the
photo shoot was started.
Combine the above two and jhead is not such a convenience at all. The
best solutions I fixed on is to create the appropriately named folder
and save all the scans within that. The scanning software allows me to
sequentially number the frames that I scan and I just put the ISO date
based prefix before that number.
