If you still have copy's of de originals straight from camera on a mirror/backup location, then i would preserve the xmapMM:PreservedFileName like they are.
In Photo supreme, you have the luxury of custom fields. I would create (a) custom field(s) just for the purpose and storing the file name and path. ( %FilePath and %FileName. )
There is a beautiful video on the IDimager TV explaining the concept of 'custom input fields' here
Do some testing before on a small subset of the images or test images.

In addition to the above: to get filename / folder name in a (custom) field you can right click and in the menu goto 'Image' (top entry).
From there you can select one of the file macros. 'File Path' gives the full path (drive + subfolder) of the image.

Is there a way to use conditionals on renaming? For instance, I like to put the name of the camera in my file name, but some names are way too big. So if I use something like this can help me a lot:

- if (attribute - camera make) then rename like this... (then I can have presets to reduce each camera name I have, accordingly).

Thanks.

You need to look at the Quick Manual for Macro Commands. You could use the Replace macro command to replace the strings returned by %Exif:model for each camera by a short code of your choice.

You can make very complex naming rules if you want with inline scripting / code snippets.
I still use

Code: Select all

%yyyy%mm%dd-%hh%nn%ss%coderesult := iif('%exif:model'='E995', '','%zzz{right=2}');%/code.%FileExtension
To make some slight changes for pics from my E995.

A more complex one from mikep:

Code: Select all

%code
if (AnsiSameText('%exif:Model', 'Nikon D200')) then
  result := 'MikeP\%yyyy\%mm%mmmm_%yyyy\%yyyy_%mm_%dd'
else if (AnsiSameText('%exif:Model', 'Nikon D300')) then
  result := 'MikeP\%yyyy\%mm%mmmm_%yyyy\%yyyy_%mm_%dd'
else if (AnsiSameText('%exif:Model', 'Nikon D70s')) then
  result := 'AshtonP\%yyyy\%mm%mmmm_%yyyy\%yyyy_%mm_%dd'
else if (AnsiSameText('%exif:Model', 'Nikon D80')) then
  result := 'MoragP\%yyyy\%mm%mmmm_%yyyy\%yyyy_%mm_%dd'
else if (AnsiSameText('%exif:Model', 'Nikon D90')) then
  result := 'MoragP\%yyyy\%mm%mmmm_%yyyy\%yyyy_%mm_%dd'
else if (AnsiSameText('%exif:Model', 'KODAK DX7440 ZOOM DIGITAL CAMERA')) then
  result := 'AshtonP\%yyyy\%mm%mmmm_%yyyy\%yyyy_%mm_%dd'
else
  result := 'Other\%yyyy\%mm%mmmm_%yyyy\%yyyy_%mm_%dd';
