How This Batch File Renaming Software Feature Works:
The Batch Rename feature will work with any files, not just Digital Images and it will preserve the filename extensions.
PhotoELF offers 7 different ways to batch rename a selected group of photos or files:
First, you simply Multi Select the filenames or thumbnail images that you wish to rename and then look in the EDIT menu and select: Batch Rename or Batch Advanced Rename
Selecting Batch Rename will produce the following window:
With Batch Rename, you may choose to give all the files selected the same Basename with sequential numbers or you can choose to Keep Original filenames but add a prefix.
The Batch Renaming "Basename" method would produce filenames that look like this:
If you click the Options Button, you can choose to start the sequential numbering at any number you wish and you can specify how much to increment the numbering. In the example above, the files were batch renamed starting at 1 and incrementing by 1. You could choose to start at 100 and increment by 10. Or any combination you wish.
The Batch Renaming "Add a Prefix" method works like this:
If the original file names were named:
Mom and Dad.jpg
and you chose a prefix of: "Dec 2003 - "
Then the resulting batch renamed files would be named:
Dec 2003 - Mom and Dad.jpg
Dec 2003 - Holiday Fun.jpg
Dec 2003 - The Kids.jpg
Selecting Batch Advanced Rename will produce the following window:
This feature will allow you to perform the following on all selected file names at once:
Again, the above batch renaming features will work on any file names, All Digital Photo files, Text Files, Document files etc.
