More options for file renaming when "Saving Images as..."
« on: November 22, 2022, 11:29:34 PM »
Hi

When I export images for one specific purpose, I would love to be able to prepend text to the file name when I save images to a smaller size.  In general though, more renaming options would be great.

In case you are not aware there is a rename operation available in the 'save as' dialog and it will utilize variables.

Specifying 'prefix_{fbas}.jpg' would save a picture named 'DSCF6858.jpg' with the new name 'prefix_DSCF6858.jpg'.

Oddly, it doesn't seem like there is a variable containing the file extension so it has to be specified manually.

If you are only prepending text you could use 'prefix_{file}' which will carry over the file extension without having to specify it manually.
