Exporting an image with the "Date-Filename" option uses the wrong date.

ISSUE: Exporting an image with the "Date-Filename" option uses the wrong date.

VERSION: v8.1.2

OS: Android 12

 

STEPS:
1. Open a photo that was taken before today
2. Share
3. Export as...
4. More Options >
5. Select "Date-Filename" under File Naming
6. Export the photo
7. Find the photo with a file explorer and check the filename. The name is prefixed with Today's date, instead of the Capture Date of the photo.

 

EXPECTED RESULT:
The exported photo's filename should be prefixed with the Capture Date of the photo.

 

ACTUAL RESULT:
The exported photo's filename is prefixed with the Today's Date.

 

NOTE:
Repeat the repo steps for Lightroom on Windows (with the same photo), and observe that the filename is correctly prefixed with the Capture Date of the photo. This inconsistency causes a lot of problems with file organisation.

Yes, I can see the same issue from an Android device, using LrM 8.1.2. Exporting from an iPhone correctly uses the image capture date, not the export date.

 

I would expect that this thread would be switched to the "Bugs" section in due course.
