You can not use the following characters in a filename.

I know... o.k then..

If I have 100 images that start with: pic, but want to change it to: image, then how do I do this all at once?

As far as I know, you can't. Maybe someone out there will prove me wrong. :o)

You can change names using DOS. Use command -

REN c:\yourdirectory\pic*.jpg image*.jpg

nice try but it doesn't work. dos does not remember the value assigned to the * wildcard.
