Rename your digital photos in bulk

Posted on August 25, 2006. Filed under: Advice, Photography |

You’ve got 342 pics from your trip to the Grand Canyon. Do you have about 3 extra hours to name them something other than 45929_23.jpg?

Me neither. Digital photography guru Derrick Story has a workaround:

First, open the folder and select View > Thumbnails.

Click the last picture in the folder you want to rename, hold down the Shift key, and click the first picture; this will select them all.

Right-click the first photo, and select Rename from the drop-down menu.

Windows XP will highlight the filename for the first photo, enabling you to give it a descriptive name.

After you type in the name, click the white space outside of the photo and watch as Windows applies the name with a sequential number to each picture in the folder.
