adding and extra word to file name
« on: December 04, 2008, 10:49:34 AM »
hi maybe i have missed it im on mac 4.5.3.2 it maybe in the upgrade i just downloaded but hey

would it be possible to insert extra text into the file name of a batch of pix?
 we like to add our agency name to all pictures so for example

kylie.01.jpg would become kylie_snappers.01.jpg

be handy and save me switching to some other prog

thanks

Try this -    kylie.snappers.{seqn}    - in the File Rename feature as a start.

Yes, you can do this already.  Use variables with 'substring extraction'.  Here is an example of how you would do the above renaming:

{filenamebase:0,5}_snappers{filenamebase:-3}

HTH,
