I am editing and exporting thousands of files in Photoshop at various sizes. Photoshop export adds sequential numbers to the file name which I now need to remove. I'm trying to use the Batch rename in Bridge but have not yet been able to configure the result I want. I need to maintain the first and last portion of the file name which varies from file to file. Example:
I only need to remove the "_0000_" sequential portion in the middle. The last portion of the file name is a code which changes from file to file so I don't think renaming will work.
Can I do this is Bridge? I called support and they said it was not possible to remove a portion of the name, however I could rename the file using Tools > Photoshop > Batch. I run into the same problem where I don't see how to remove the sequential portion and keep my unique codes at the end.
Also, what is the difference between that and Tools > Batch rename?
Thanks if anyone can help or suggest another tool to accomplish this.
There is any number of free file batch renaming tools out there. Seriously, you really don't need Bridge but something like BulkRename or the respective batch features in image viewers liek XnView or IrfanView.
Thanks! Looks like BatchFileRename for Mac is doing the trick.
It allows me to trim a certain amount of characters off (including the unwanted sequence) and then add my prefix back. Would be nice if that option was available in Bridge.
