"01" applied to all my ingested images
« on: March 21, 2015, 08:28:28 PM »
My ingest renaming formula is {job name}_{sequence}. However, I'm getting {job name}_{sequence}01. The "01" is added to each image.

How do I eliminate/avoid the "01" on future ingests? I have no idea why it happened now.

Thank you.

Check your Renaming resolution settings.

Renaming resolution: Set options for what Photo Mechanic should do when it tries to save a file to a folder and there is an identically named file already present at the destination. This policy applies to all renaming operations. You can choose to append a letter, or a single or double digit number, when needed. The best option here is probably ‘Append Digits when needed (01,02 etc.)’. This option makes it easy to see at a glance when there were two files with the same name since the new file name will be longer and easy to spot.

Kirk: thank you for the quick response.

These are all images going into an empty folder created on ingest.

Thanks, Kirk. I checked preferences and saw they were set to "always" apply "01" as opposed to when necessary. That fixed it.
