Batch Renaming Your Files

The File Browser will actually let you change the name of an entire folder (or disc) full of images so your digital camera photo names are no longer the cryptic DSC01181.JPG, DSC01182.JPG, DSC01183.JPG variety, but names you choose that will be more recognizable, such as Concert Shot 1, Concert Shot 2, Concert Shot 3, etc., and best of all, the whole process is automated. (Incidentally, this is particularly helpful when you’re working off your CD, because you can have Elements create a duplicate folder of these photos on your hard drive with the new names.) Here’s how:

Step One

You can hold the Control key and click on only the photos you want to rename, but a more likely scenario is that you’ll want to rename all the photos displayed in your File Browser, so go under the File Browser’s Edit menu and choose Select All.
