Rename: Start number does not work

Post by ecke » Sun Jul 05, 2020 7:44 pm

Hey there,

I have a problem in using the Start-Number function when renaming pictures. Following situation: i have taken photographes of an object in a random order, but now I not only want to rename them but also to have them in a certain order. So I don't rename the whole stack at once but consecutive parts of it, containing only a few pictures. Therefore, I need the Start-Number function for the 2nd part onwards. However, it does not work. I select the pictures, click on rename ,choose the template (for instance Plant 02) and the starting number (e.g. 3). The programme automatically renames the files but always starting with _01 (Plant 02_01) instead of Plant 02_03. I don't know what to do to make it work correctly.

Does anyone know?

Thanks
