I have the Faststone slideshow maker to arrange the order of images.  However, Faststone has at least one major flaw.

My question what slideshow editor has the full screen for thumbnail which is great for editing/arranging images.

Lifetime license for the software is preferable.  I have tried over two dozen software titles, so far none meet my ideal.

is your problem batch renaming your image files?

what do you do with the renamed files afterwards?

would i help if you kept the "root name+number" for your renamed files?

if so, you could use IrfanView for batch renaming:

Yes, you have to use the batch rename function as the current file order/layout rests in the INI file.  I suppose you could use Word or Excel to copy the INI file and find a method to rename the column of text; I have not found a method for this.

what do you do with the renamed files afterwards?
They are in the order that I choose.  This new order is subject to more rearranging.

would i help if you kept the "root name+number" for your renamed files?
I tried this, the length of the file name grows fast, but you could rename and remove the old name code of the file name.  But this is not a clean solution.

I also tried to find a backup app that would copy the INI file every few minutes, I have not found this solution.

Many thanks,

I found an app that will do differential backups for a specific file at 10-min. intervals:

Norton File Insight showed no issues.  So this is a safety belt for saving resorting the images.
