Randomly rename files....

4 posts in this topic

Anyone know of a prog that will rename a batch of files in a random fashion. I have a good reason even though it seems odd to want such a disorderly named group of files....

These digital picture frames I bought show pictures in alphabetical order...no option to randomize them. So, if I name the scanned pictures by subject, it would show all pics of one of my kids, then all from another kid, then from another kid, etc.....would be helpful if once I had all the pics scanned, I could use a prog to randomly rename them. Would save a lot of effort in trying to name all the files in a way so that a bunch of one kid wouldn't show up picture after picture.

call the manufacturer, suggest a "shuffle" option on the frame, once it happens, sue them for the idea and make a million bucks! Kill two birds with one stone!!!

Don't have lightroom....still working with pshop 6...does that have the rename (and most importantly will it do random)?
