    Post Struggling to understand replacing text when batch renaming files

    Hi.

    A very random file I found have the name "DSC01304.JPG". This file is placed in a directory with some houndred files with same name scheme, "DSC" followed by 5 digits.

    How can I set up the renaming dialog box in IV to change the name scheme to "Image_" and followed by 4 digits.


    Thanks
    If it hurts not to drint, don't waste the bottle then.

    I think you need something more clever than IV.

    Try the File Renamer

    I assume that in your example you want the resulting name to be Image_1304.JPG
