I am trying to batch rename files in Bridge - a process I have done thousands of times before, but it is insisting that I use a preset, and that I input a preset name, but when I do hit save the preset name it just cycles through the process again and won't let me rename (the rename button is greyed out, as are the options to rename in same folder. ) Also, the only option available is to copy to another folder - which I don't want to do.
This is the first set of files from a new camera and new SD card. The card was accidentally set to write protect. Will this be affecting bridge and if so how do I unprotect them and get Bridge to allow me to rename. It also won't let me append metadata.
First ingest the images into your computer and/or external drive. (Best to make copies at this point) and then on the copies or originals, do what you want to do with them (rename, enhance, whatever). But never ever try to work on images that are still on the SD card.
