Can I rename images with sequence number reset each day
« on: February 17, 2009, 08:36:19 PM »
Is it possible to setup Photo Mechanic so that when renaming images (either on ingest or later) the sequence number resets with each new day that comes across from {datesort}. For example, if I shoot across two days I currently get something like:

image-20090217-0001.jpg
image-20090217-0002.jpg
image-20090217-0003.jpg
image-20090217-0004.jpg
image-20090218-0005.jpg
image-20090218-0006.jpg
image-20090218-0007.jpg
image-20090218-0008.jpg

What I would like to have is:

image-20090217-0001.jpg
image-20090217-0002.jpg
image-20090217-0003.jpg
image-20090217-0004.jpg
image-20090218-0001.jpg
image-20090218-0002.jpg
image-20090218-0003.jpg
image-20090218-0004.jpg

With the reset occurring for each new day, of course.

It's not a big deal with smaller numbers, but if I shoot a lot the first day it tends to scare me when the first image I see for the next day is something like "image-20090218-1527.jpg". Make me think I lost 1526 images somewhere. I realize that I could do this by hand by selecting each date and resetting the sequence number that way, but I'd rather have it all happen in one go.

Thanks!
