Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Batch renaming files, part of Up and Running with Photoshop Automation.
If you followed my advice in the previous…section, you might start renaming files when you import.…But perhaps you all ready have files on a…hard drive or you were given files by a client.…The good news is is that Bridge has…some very useful options for batch renaming files.…In fact, I don't just use this on my stills, I'll often…batch rename the video files that come out of my DSLR cameras.…Here I have a folder of several images.…And there are gaps…in naming and numbering.…If this was an image sequence or a time lapse movie, I'd…want those numbers to be consistent, which is another use of this tool.…
But for purposes of this shoot, I'm just going to…select all these images and choose Tools > Batch Rename.…I want to go ahead and create some new options here.…So, I'm just going to create a new name.…I'll say Text and…we'll call this Phoenix, underscore.…I will click Add.…And tell it to put a Sequential Number using three digits.…
Or, if I have a lot of images, four, five or even six digits.…And its automatically going to put the extension at the end.…
