How Do I Batch Rename Digital Photos ?

Digital photos are saved in the form DSC00001,DSC0002 and so on.

This is fine untill I want to add the next batch of photots to the same folder and then I'm faced with duplicate file names.

Up untill know I've been right-clicking and renaming them indvidually but it's soooo tedious !

How can I batch re-number them please ?

Will windows do it or do I have to get third party software ?

Select all the photos, right click the top one while still selected & rename the file, they will all have the same name but numbered as in... Blackpool (1) & so on.

Once you've copied the photos to your HD, do you format the memory card?

If so, I think that's why you get duplicate filenames.

With my camera, I simply delete the photos and the filenames just continue to run sequentially.

You should be able to set your camera to carry on counting from where it left off or start from number 1 again.
