Import and sort plus rename

Post by FrankvanK »

I love XnViewMP more and more. You can do so much with it, that I'm still learning new thing every time.

But I have a question. I'm using XnView MP Windows, Version 0.94.1 64bits (Nov 21 2019).
When I import and sort files, I like to rename them to a new file name. I use the line:

{Modified Date [Ymd]}-VA-###

Where -VA- is just the abbreviation of the photographer.

Print screen:
Import and sort new filename - 001.jpg

When the files are imported and sorted in a directory of the date. The file have a new name. But the numbers are not correct. All numbers are up following over all directories:

Directory:2019_11_28
Filenames:
20191128-VA-001
20191128-VA-002
20191128-VA-003
20191128-VA-004
20191128-VA-005

Printscreen:
Import and sort new filename - 002.jpg
Directory: 2019_11_29
Filenames:
20191129-VA-006
20191129-VA-007
20191129-VA-008

Import and sort new filename - 003.jpg
And I like to have that every day/directory starts with a new count:

Directory: 2019_11_29
Filename
20191129-VA-001
20191129-VA-002
20191129-VA-003
Import and sort new filename - 005.jpg

Now I have to rename the files in Batch conversion. See attachment.This is lot of extra work and the possibilities to make mistakes.
Import and sort new filename - 004.jpg
Is it possible to Import and Rename the files in a correct way? Or do I do something wrong?

Thanks Frank

Hi Pierre,

What is the status of a setting to re-start counter for each folder? Will this become an update, that will be released soon? Or should I asked for it on a different group. It is possible with a program like Advanced Renamer, but I like to do it straight away in XnView.

Thank you very much,
Frank
