Tags: #bridge #batch_rename

i hope someone can help me. i moved some .dng files from an external drive to my mapbook pro using batch rename in bridge CS5. The files moved to my desktop ine, but now they will not open. When I try to open them  the digital convertor opens up. When I try to open them in photoshop it says it is a unrecognized format. They were fine ten minutes ago in bridge. does anyone have anything they can have me try? I am depserate to get these images printed up tonight and I don't have time to edit them again.

    You probably forgot to include the extension .dng or renamed with an extra dot (.) in the filename. Be surr to have only 1 dot with the three letter extension dng at the end (. dng)


    You can use Bridge for that again to rename and use the dng extension
