Hello All,

I am looking for a program that can move/rename photo files from my sd card to an external drive, while inserting some text into the folder and file name.
As I want to add the job name to my folders and photos, so that I know what the session was about. I used to have the DIM5 program, but that is no longer supported and doesn't work very well on Windows 10 and my 4K screen..... But it would ask me for the job name input when I started the process.
So, can i do that with this program? Add some sort of "random" text to the folders and file names while I am moving and renaming the files?
I also want to separately move/rename my RAW files from the card into a sub-folder in the destination folder.

Thanks in advance. Eric.

Advanced Renamer will not move from one drive to another. But you can use the program to copy the files. You will then have to delete them from the sd card afterwards.

You can use the New Name method to add some text to the existing filename or to add an incrementing number with the tag <Inc Nr:1>

I will explore those options to see if I can make it do what I want from it.
It is too bad that the DIM 5 program does not work properly under Win 10 and is no longer supported. It was a great little utility!
