Script for renaming jpg
Posted on 2014-11-06
I need to rename about 300 student pix. Currently, they are labeled 001.jpg, 002.jpg and so on. I need to rename them to their individual student ID with the jpg extension.
I have an excel spreadsheet that has Column B with the 001.jpg format and Column C with the matching studentID.jpg format.
Is there a way to have the actual pictures renamed automatically without having to manually copy the student ID, go to the jpg picture and do a rename? 300 manual cut and pastes are not on my list of IT "to do's" but I seem to be the one who is left dealing with it.
By the way, I need this format to get the pictures into our SIS and another program.
Any help is appreciated.
