Hi all -

Love the tool.

I am using the tool to rename images, however I have come across a issue were I need to rename the images as follows

I have a master image then say 2 or 3 images that link to the master image.

So for example this how i need to rename the images.

1.jpg
1_1.jpg
1_2.jpg
1_3.jpg
2.jpg
2_1.jpg
2_2.jpg
3.jpg
2_1.jpg
etc...


The purpose is to bulk upload the images on my hobby website and then I can link all the images with the first number the same to a description.
*Most of the time their will be 4 images per 1 description but it can vary once in a while.

This sort of thing is usually not possible with Advanced Renamers regular methods. But if you tell me the files original names I will try to find a solution for you. And if I don't find one with the regular methods I can create a small piece of javascript for you.

Kim,

the images usually start life with a name of IMG_4567.jpg, IMG_4568.jpg, etc...

really just random names, so set names.

Thanks,
Rich

Alright, so there is no way to extract the numbering from the original filename. So the first file has to be called 1.jpg and the next 1_1.jpg, how many files are there in each set? The number of files in each set must be a constant value.
