Rename Your Photo Files – FAST!

By
Real Estate Services with CPG Tours

To me, changing the file names of all my photos from what comes out of the camera is a big pain. But I typically rename everything to show the property address, the photo size, or something else that lets me know what the photo is, who it’s for, or what I’ve done to it. I also use some sort of numeric sequencing.

Well… I just came across a little application that is absolutely AWESOME!

It’s called A BETTER FINDER RENAME and it can rename your files to pretty much whatever you want in a matter of seconds. It can add things, remove things, replace things, determine your photo size and add that to the name, and about a zillion other things.

EDIT: I should mention this is batch processing. So, you could change hundreds of files ina  second or two.

 

If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend you check it out. And they have it for both Mac and PC.Just click the below links.

 

Mac: A BETTER FINDER RENAME

PC:  BETTER FILE RENAME FOR WINDOWS!

 

Here’s a screenshot of the interface, which is extremely easy to use.

Hi William: I know there are other ways to do this, but I find this program extremely helpful. And I use it all the time - primarily for photos. Thanks for the comment.

Hi Michael -- Thanks a lot, this has always been a source of irritation for me as sometimes I have multiple types of photos so I just can't use one addressing scheme as it comes out of the camera.

Hi Chris: I almost forgot about this post, but thank you for the comment. I still use this little application a lot. But i also use Bridge, which allows you to rename photos in batches. If someone does a lot of photo or file renaming, it will definitely come in handy.

I'll have to check it out. I've simply been using Windows Explorer while trying to get used to Bridge in Photoshop CS5, which, so far, I don't really like. Maybe I'm so used to Explorer after all these years that going to something new and a little different just takes time and getting used to.
