    Help! Need to Rename 1,500 files!!!

    fowvaydriver
      hey All,
      I need to take 1,500 jpeg files and convert the names. It's not a normal conversion. I need to take say for example.. two files
      called one.jpeg and two.jpeg and make the names one_bd.jpeg and two_bd.jpeg. The text will be organized so that the first file in the list that needs to be changed.. will also be the first file in the list for the changed name.
      Can i do something like this in fireworks? if not what application would everyone suggest?
      thanks in advance,
      Jesse
