Renaming Files

Post by tvandawalker » 21 Mar 12 21:04

Trying to figure out how to rename files using the batch tool to the format "year_month_customname_seq#.nef" and I can't for the life of me figure it out. What am I missing. This is so easy to do in other apps.

Hi Tim

Use the Batch - Rename File Function.

In the Rename Select text and enter %yyyy_%mmm_Customname_%imagenumber{increment=1;offset=0;length=3}.%FileExtension

Then Run the Batch on the images you want to rename (test images first of course:-))

I find it easier to type in the text (even though the window is small) rather than fiddle with the adding of field selectors and trying to shuffle them into the right order. use the field selector drop downs to "get" the fields syntax and fine tune it in the text window.

The details on Image number are from the IDimager Version5 help file:
