Currently when I setup my export preset I use the (date and time, sequence 0001) defaults for my pics but the date and time defaults to the captured time stored in the photos metadata. so if I have 10 photos taken at different days or years, the dates are all over the board.
I want those 10 photos to export using the current date that i export them, regardless of when they where taken, is there a way to do this easily?
The only way to accomplish that with Lightroom built-in features is a little clumsy: Manually edit the custom renaming template each time you export:
If you're comfortable with scripting, you could obtain the Run Any Command plugin, which would let you write a shell script that renames the files as a post-processing action of the export.
