Is it possible to save a picture with many diffrent file names?
I have 1 picture, but need to name it 50 diffrent things. can this be done at the same time, or is there software that can do this?

Hmmm, I think you have to 'Save As' for each individual file name, unless there is a batchfile way of saving with your program.

Good Luck,

Hi many different ways to do this
normally I use EXCEL to create a list of names as it has lots of list features then copy and paste list to a batch file ( text file with a bat extension ) and run.

certainly a batch file will do the job however if you have ms access then the same can be achieved with more flexabilty and less code

as ahmedbahgat says you can you access or any product that VBA
Here is how it looks in Access

Just create a form with a command button - no database needed - and paste the below code in - modify paths etc.

again this is a very simple example and one can get far smarter if the task is repeated regularly etc

Private Sub Command0_Click()
Dim i As Integer

For i = 1 To 50
    FileCopy "c:\data\picture.jpg", "c:\data\copy\" & i & ".jpg"
Next i
End Sub

exactly Ian, we can also use a variable to prompt the user for how many times they want to copy it as well ask the user for the source file and the destination folder

Open access
Choose any old database or create a new one.
Goto forms, click new
Design view OK
Bring up the toolbox and drag a command button onto the form
If the wizard is on - just press cancel
If wizard off select build from DESIGN toolbar
Choose code builder
Copy and paste code from above. ( edit your paths etc.
Save form
open form
click button

As ahmedbahgat says you can use input boxes and tree views etc but this requires more coding than time allows right now.
