About a year ago i had a problem in Windows 7 where i could not resort nd rename pics, so i could put them in my own order.
After making the regedit changes i did not have the problems with resorting the pictures nor then renaming... that is to say i could successfully drag the pics to the order i want, select all, batch rename and they were in the order as i had renamed.
Now i have Windows 8.1. I have made the regedit changes and can drag the pics into the order i require. however, when selecting all and then batch rename, it does not rename the pics in my order... it renames them in the order of the time they were taken.
So the issue is that is is renaming the pics in the date/time it was taken rather than my order.
click here advice appreciated! The alternative is to individually rename each pic.
I use BRU regularly in Win 8.1. It will certainly do all you wish for. Do not be put off by the interface. It is a bit intimidating at first. Just concentrate on options 5,7,8,and 10 until you get used to it.
i have familiarised myself with the utility.. but i dont see how it might be able to help with my issue..
the only way i can think is if the utility WILL allow me to sort i to the order i require and NOT rename in the order the photo was taken.. but to do that i need to view the images in the utility to drag around..
i cant find a way to view ALL the images in the utility at the same time.4options>display>picture viewer will allow you to view the pic you have selected only
thanks rdave13 - i have used this to disable auto range - thanks
my problem now is that AFTER re-ordering the pics in to the sequence i require, when i select all to bulk rename, instead of renaming in the new order, they are renamed in the order they were taken!
