Max,

Select the photos in Photo Mechanic.  Use the Rename Photos command on the File menu.  In the rename text field enter:

ABC

Then set the 'Sequence' checkbox.  Click on the 'Set {seqn} variable...' button and type:

01

into the {seqn} value: text field.  If you have more than 99 photos you may want to add an additional zero, making your initial sequence value 001 instead of 01.

Click the OK button to accept your new sequence number.  Click the Rename button.  A few moments later your images will all be named ABC01, ABC02, etc.
