this is what i end up with - never happened before? there is no .jpg?
What were you trying to do and how were you diong that?
rename 100's of images from a trip - using PS bridge.
have never had this happen before?
You apparently removed the .jpeg extension. If you add that back, it should work.
If you use batch renaming, set it to <current filename> + .jpeg or .jpg. NB - try with a single file first!
never had to do this in CS6?
took me 4 tries to figure it out.
Batch renaming in Bridge is a very flexible tool - flexible enough to remove the extension if you're not careful 🙂
Since your question is about Adobe Bridge, I have moved this from the Photoshop forum where you posted.
When you do a batch rename in Bridge, there is a preview at the bottom of what one file will look like when renamed. Glancing at this makes it easy to see if you need an underscore to separate sections or if you have forgotten to include the extension.
