Wrong date in file name when importing in Lightroom 5.0

Sep 28, 2013 2:58 PM

When I import files in Lightroom 5.0 and select the rename check box and use a custom template that includes the date (year, month, day) the files import with and incorrect date (not the current date).  The rest of the data in the file name from the custom template is correct.  How can I get the date correct?

    Using the date option when you rename adds the image capture date, not the current system date. I don't think there's a way to add "current date" automatically, though not sure why you'd want to. The vast majority of users who use "date" in their file names want the capture date, not import date.
