about changes possible for {filename}
« on: August 16, 2009, 07:47:26 AM »
I see {filename:8} suppress 7 letters from begining.

I need suppress letters at the end of filename. I wish the name of an old photo "adrien-07-04" wuold be only "adrien" . If success, i know how to obtain  "adrien-Apr2007" and the same for a lot of photos.
Is it possible ?
Thanks

Yes.  Use:

{filename:0,6}

Sorry, it is not convenient for any name.
I would have something like
{filename:0,lengthname  - 6}

I suppose it is not possible ?

With IvieWediaPro, I made change "-07-04" by "". (Only 12 manip for each year…)

Then use {filename:0,-6} instead.
