Going to take photos and templates, Shift+Select them, and bring them into the images directory. Now that I have this in place, let's come back to the exercise files. Let's go into the Photos for Gallery. I am going to Shift+Select all of the pictures, hold the Option or Alt in Windows, and drag a copy of all of these JPEG files into the photos directory inside of the myGallery directory we just created for our project. Let me close up the exercise files. Now, all these JPEGs in the photos directory are going to be the high-resolution files, so I want to name them with _fullsize in the file name.
So instead of renaming each one, I am going to use Adobe Bridge. Going to take the photos directory and just drag and drop at right on top of Adobe Bridge. Inside of Bridge, if we drag a folder on top of the Bridge icon, it will automatically open that folder in our operating system here. And by default, I have a Content panel here and a Preview panel. Selecting items down here in Content will show me the preview here. Holding the Command or Ctrl key in Windows, I can select multiple files. I'm going to come down and choose Edit > Select All to select all of the files.
Let's come under the Tools menu and choose Batch Rename. Inside of this dialog box here, I am going to come down here and choose Default. This will be the first screen that you're going to see when you've run Batch Rename. And down here we basically are going to construct the new file names we want to have Bridge rename all of the files to. So we're going to start with the first one and choose Current Filename. And the first item here is just going to be Name. Let's take off Name and Extension. Let's come over here to the Minus signs and let's delete two of these parameters.
And instead of Date and Time, let's change this to Text, and we're going to come in here and type _fullsize. I am going to come over here and click Preview. Bridge is going to show me the original file names over here on the left with the brand-new file name. It's going to rename everything on the right-hand side. That looks right, acrobats_fullsize, apartments, berries. Let's choose OK and let's hit Rename. Come back to our operating system. I can see all of the files have now been renamed with _fullsize in the file name.
Let's come over and close Bridge. Now that we have our fullsize files ready, in the next movie we're going to open up the preview and thumbnail sizes and we're going to export those from Photoshop.
