RE: How do you setup Bulf Rename Utility?
Posted on 2010-09-22
Hello. Does anyone know how to use the free program called Bulk Rename Utility by chance? I am using the latest version. It is aimple in terms of function, but loaded with settings.
I am absolutely lost on how to setup with the settings and controls at the bottom of the program interface?
1. What I need to do is change the file names in a file from the original names starting with, for example, DSC00001 (a jpeg picture from a SONY camera naming scheme) to say picture001. I have 150 pictures that need name changes in counting order. I see this program offers a lot of features that I will have to learn, but for now I need to know what I need to setup in order to do this simple task. Please provide detailed setup steps since the program interface is so technical.
2. Also, if I were to 'add' a few more characters to the end of the current file name, how would I do that? For example, a file is named, MyPictures001, and the next file is MyPictures002, etc. ending at MyPictures125. I want to add the date so it would read for example, MyPictures001 - 7-15-10 PM . This would be the same add-on for all 125 files. How would I setup in the interface to do that, detailed steps please.
