How to rename photos in a batch at once?

2 years 1 week ago #703254 by Cristy Fields
If I have a folder full of images and I want to rename them at once, how can I do this?  So far I'm right clicking, selecting rename, typing in new name for photo, and hitting save.  Must be quicker way.  

Thank you for the help!

For that purpose, I use the very reliable ABFR since years…
the most stable and best flexible tool on the market.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

This is ezy-pezy in Windows

1) open the folder with all the images inside
2) single-click the LAST image in the folder
3) go to the top of the folder
4) Hold the Shift-key and single-click the FIRST image in the folder
This will select ALL images and put the first image ready to be renamed

5) =either= press F2 (on some keyboards) =or= right-click onto Rename
6) enter the new name with a number at the end, ie- Holiday (1)
7) press <Enter>

And Windows will then rename your many, many images (1) to (999) or whatever

Hope this helps
