Batch Rename / Renumber Image Files with Descriptions

Post by Ralf Brinkmann » 18 Mar 2016 19:00

The image files out of my camera have names like

DSC_0001.NEF
DSC_0002.NEF
DSC_0003.NEF and so on.

If I delete one file and want to renumber them all, it's easy with F2 (or Shift-F2) => DSC_<#0001>.

But now I have added file descriptions to the filename, like

DSC_0001 Königspython Baby.NEF
DSC_0002 Zwerg-Klapperschlage.NEF
DSC_0003 Hakennasennatter.NEF

for faster searching and finding. How can I renumber these files, if I delete one, without changing or deleting the description? * and ? seem not to be fit for that.

I was afraid that somebody would have such an idea. Has nobody ever seen how easy it is for example in Idoswin Pro to rename, renumber and all these things? There are many things which XYPlorer can do better, but I think, this is a less strong part. Please find an easier solution for us user.

Use a special rename tool, http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?sc=45
You can make it as a Catalog entry or a toolbar button. Most of them support command line paths and will open your selected files/folder in the application.
I'm using Rename Master and it works as described above when launched from XYplorer.

I did it with Idowswin Pro now, because I already have it, it's also in German and this feature works perfect. But it would really be nice, if the great XYPlorer also could do that with some mouse clicks and a simple to understand ui.

This was my file manager until development was stopped (2010?). :D
