I have images from various collections (123456 and 12222 in this case)

I need to rearrange photos in each collection and change the sequence

123456_1

123456_2

123456_3 (I want this to be first for this collection)

122222_1

122222_2

122222_3 (I want this to be first for this collection)

Is there a way to do this in few step?

I can rearrange for each collection but doing this way takes too long.

so 
3rd image will be named 123456_1

1st image will be named 123456_2

2nd image will be na,ed 123456_3

And I need to repeat this process for each collection but I got so many collections. Let me know if there is a bulk way to do this using batch rename

An interesting conundrum! I gave it some thought and no answer in Bridge, but suggest a procedure in a Rename app that might work IF all your "collections"  have images in each 'collection' ( filename 'Group') with a  filename sequence like _1, _2, _3, _4, etc.  Using alphabet characters as temporary place-holders to change the sequence numbers.

1) Rename any file with a suffix of _1  to _x   (eg. 12345_1  becomes 12345_x)

2) Rename any file with a suffix of _2  to _y   (eg. 12345_2  becomes 12345_y)

3) Rename any file with a suffix of _3  to _z   (eg. 12345_3  becomes 12345_z)

Now reverse the order-

4) Rename any file with a suffix of _x  to _3   (eg. 12345_x  becomes 12345_3)

5) Rename any file with a suffix of _y  to _2   (eg. 12345_y  becomes 12345_2)

6) Rename any file with a suffix of _z  to _1   (eg. 12345_z  becomes 12345_1)

I can do this in a Windows App 'Bulk Rename Utility' https://www.bulkrenameutility.co.uk/

There is sure to be some 'brianiac' that has a better answer 🙂

Hi @defaultfjdm9s5cr512 ,

 

One file can be a part of multiple collections, so that's why collection name is not included in Batch Rename settings.

 

Thanks,

Bridge Team
