I would like to take several files (photos) and rename these NUMERICALLY - but without having to click on each file and type in a new number.
Example : I have 300 photos I want to re-number from 1 to 300. Is there an application or procedure which will allow me to "highlight all" and then have the photos simply (and randomly) number themselves from 1 to 300 in just a couple of clicks with the mouse?
Did some quick testing. Here are my first impressions (FWIW):
NAME CHANGER : Restrictions as to how one wants the file extensions to appear (e.g. uppercase vs lowercase, hidden or shown, etc.)
A BETTER FINDER NAME : "Free" version permits renames in groups of ten files (only) at one time. For example: The process to rename 300 photos would have to be repeated 30 times with 10 files/images done each time.
RENAME : Is the simplest to use (for my needs) and there are no limits or restrictions to the number of items or text content of titles/file extensions . . . and it's FREE
I usually use short terminal ditties to do renaming. or folderizing. customer had a folder with 9600 items in it, took forever to get listings etc. wrote a quick little script to make 28 folders (A-Z, #, and _) to move lettered, numbered, and all other files into different folders.
Makes it a lot saner.
