Batch renaming of images

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by ian_ok, May 24, 2005.

  1. #1
    I'd like to rename a whole load of images from:

    img_324234.jpg
    img_324235.jpg
    img_324236.jpg
    etc....to:
    1.jpg
    2.jpg
    3.jpg

    Have tried the batch process in photoshop but I get an error message:
    feather is not currently available

    This is for easier loading into php documents.

    Thanks for any poniters.

    You can download Paint Shop Pro on a free 60 day trial. If the batch re-name is a one off thing maybe try it then uninstall.

    It takes a while to get used to that program, but once you do, it really kicks butt. :)

    There is an easy way of renaming files if you are on windows machine. Just select all the images in the directory (CTRL+A) and then right click on the first image (make sure all the files are selected) and choose RENAME. Name it e.g. a.jpg and that’s it. All the selected files will be renamed to something like this:


    a(1).jpg
    a(2).jpg
    a(3).jpg .......

    May not be that useful but works for me.

    Cheers,

    -zeb

    Yeah I don't think anyone likes the "()" in their file names. But useful nonetheless, thanks Zeb. ;)

    Have tried tested and VERY happy with the file renamer software from fauland.com

    Syncmaster (Zeb), thanks for that I did know about that method, but need the images to correspond exactly with my php file i.e. 1.php links to 1.jpg etc....But it is a great alternative.

    Thanks everyone, a lot easier to get my proposed work done now.

    they can be renamed like any other file. You need licensed software to resize them though.
