Renaming issue ?
« on: August 25, 2006, 05:22:13 PM »
Hi,

Just having a play about with the trial version of PM. I'm trying to rename the files with the prefix of MA_001 (01 being sequential) added to the rest of the filename of 8A5C0560.jpg. So I want to end up with something like MA_001_8A5C0560.jpg

All I have managed to do so far is rename files sequentially, my original 8A5C0560.jpg becomes just an MA_001.jpg, I'm losing the original part of the filename.

How do I set this up so I get a combination of the two ?

Many thanks,

MA_{seqn}_{filenamebase}

That should do it.
