Changed title to reflect that this is about JPEG image files. Removed my (now unnecessary) previous status edit. Added 'exiftool' tag.

It's probably best if you copy whatever worked from my comment (or the linked answers) and post an answer to your own question, which is encouraged here. I don't know what worked for you so I would just be guessing.

Good question and while it's not an exact duplicate, you may find this answer helpful. It's gvfs storing the metadata, not Nautilus itself. Because of the renaming, it's probably Nautilus caching a copy of the old icon causing your issue. Try restarting Nautilus to see if that refreshes the icon.

@kos I prefer to have the image date in the file name, and one problem with relying on alphabetical names is that many cameras output a relatively short numerical count (e.g. Nikons use DSC_0001-DSC-9999) which would put the files out of order if I rely on the name alone. The one constant that I can rely on is the Exif metadata which I always keep accurate on every camera. Then I throw them all in /Pictures and everything's in order.

comment How to hide “Show password” in Network Manager?
This is a decent question if we answer how to do it using Ubuntu anyway, provided it's not a dupe. @LeonKlinke can you try reading this Ubuntu Forums thread and see if that helps? The TL;DR is to configure WiFi for all users as an admin user and then give the school users regular accounts for login. That works as long as they don't need install rights.
