Export marked files in manual order

Post by TommiG2 » Mon Feb 12, 2018 1:37 pm

Dear colleagues,
I am a beginner. Sorry for this question:

In a folder I do some manual ordering per drag and drop. Then I select (mark) some of them and would like to export this selection into a new location for e.g. uploading into webspace.
The best function I found is "Batch convert", which makes a change in filename with an counting index. Fine. But this does *NOT* preserve my manual ordering I did before.
Do you have any idea how I could do this?

Thank you in advance.
Regards, Thomas

XnView MP Windows v0.89 64bit, Win10

If I understand ...
Drag and drop files to obtain the order you wish, then select them (only select) and use "tools, batch rename"
If you want to preserve original files, copy the whole set in another folder before

Dear Michel,
thank you for your help.
Yes, its a good idea. I will try it in 2 steps. After rearranging and selecting, I'll do a "batch rename" and then an export for my web site.
Great.
It's a fine product. Thank you.

I used Picasa before, but it makes some trouble recently. I am happy with XnView now.
Regards, Thomas

You can also use "create , File list" and generate a list if files , with html added
something like :

Code: Select all

<div> <a href="pictures/{filename with ext}" title={iptc:caption}"> <img src="thumbs/{filename with ext}"> </a> </div>
This will generate a html line for each file selected , for a website ...
