I was surprised not to find a post on this subject.
Under XP if you selected all files in a folder renumbering was simple. With Vista it seems to be an impossible task with files/photos being renumbered haphazardly and the more so the more attempts you make. SOmehow I even lost 90 odd photos completely (fortunately backed up on a second drive).
I find it hard to believe that something so sim,ple and necessary cannot be achieved. Does anyone know the solution? Please
I have upgraded Irfanview to version 4.0 and have tried using the program. However, it does not appear to do what I require. Perhaps you can help.
I have photos in 2 different folders, each numbered in order with different prefixes, I now wish to merge the photos into one folder but sorting photos from one into the other by similar subject. ( I hope this makes sense). Whilst windows allows this it will not let me renumber sequentially in the same order as I have placed them. If I transfer the photos into Irfanview it appears that it will not stick to the order I have placed them but re-sorts them into original number order. Previously under XP this was not a problem since WIndows would rename in the same order as in the window.
Is their a way around this?
