Author Topic: Can an NEF (or any raw file) have the same filebase (name) as it’s companion jpg?  (Read 3439 times)

Love PM5 and am still learning everything it can do. My file naming convention is a little unorthodox in that I have been using numbers for file names for years. So - my ingest renames my files just using the {seqn} variable. When I shoot RAW + JPG and ingest, the JPG is incremented up 1 number from it’s matching RAW file, no real big deal but I am wondering if there is a way that both the RAW and the JPG can be renamed to have the same number before the extension? Like 10256.NEF and 10256.jpg. Would make it a bit easier to match the jpg to the NEF.

Any ideas?

If I shoot RAW +JPG, I ingest first, then rename with sequence numbers added. I think this should work:

Ingest RAW and JPG into the same folder (this should happen by default)
Select all images
Select Rename Photos from the File menu (or Ctrl M in Windows)
Set the new file name to the variables {filenamebase} {seqn}  (the space is optional but I find it easier to read)
Click OK

That should do it.
