Renommer par lot

Batch renaming

You can rename a whole set of images at once thanks to the batch renaming feature. Proceed as described below:

  • Select images you want to rename (Shift+Click or Ctrl+Click)
  • Click on the  button in the details panel
Note
This feature is only available with the [Pro] edition.

Presets

You’ve got four presets at your disposal which you can configure placeholders. Selecting one of those presets will define how the images will be renamed.

Info
Presets configuration is automatically saved in the settings so that next time you open this window they will all be reloaded.

Placeholders

A placeholder let you insert dynamically a piece of information into the file name. This information will be evaluated for each file to rename. For example the Date placeholder lets you insert shot date in the file name.

File name

Nom de fichier

This placeholder lets you insert the following information in the new file name:

  • Original file name
  • Author (from Exifs)
  • Brand and/or camera body
  • Image width and/or height
  • Any string that is valid in a file name
Examples
holidays-{author}
{Filename}-{Width}x{Height}

Counter

Compteur

This placeholder add a number in the file name. For each renamed image, this number will be incremented by 1. Indeed you can choose the initial value.

Info
The application automatically pads the number with zeros so that files can be properly sorted. For example, if you are renaming 300 images and that the initial value is zero, then first images will be numbered this way: “000”, 001”, “002”, “003”.

Date

Date

This placeholder lets you insert in the file name one of the four dates available:

  • Shot date
  • Modification date
  • Creation date
  • Date added the database

You can also customize the date formatting (for example you can choose to insert only the year)

Examples
yyyy-MM-dd  2020-09-02
yyyy-MMM  2020-sep.

Camera

Boitier

This placeholder lets you insert the camera brand and / or the camera body (extracted from Exif) in the file name.
