Script to Batch Rename as Title Case

Copied

This comes up from time to time due to the shortcoming of Bridge Batch Renaming having only UPPERCASE or lowercase options. It is possible to create a Regular Expression based Batch Rename to create Title Case , however, it isn't very flexible and can be complex to setup.

 

The following script simplifies the process of renaming selected files to use a simple Title Case naming convention.

 

For example, the following original filenames:

 

the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.psd

THE QUICK BROWN FOX JUMPS OVER THE LAZY DOG.psd

 

Would be transformed to:

 

The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog.psd

#target bridge

if (BridgeTalk.appName == "bridge") {
   var titleCase = new MenuElement("command", "Rename to Title Case", "at the end of Tools");
}

titleCase.onSelect = function () {
   var theFiles = app.document.selectionsLength;
   for (var a = 0; a < theFiles; a++) {
      var selsName = decodeURI(app.document.selections[a].spec.name.replace(/\.[^\.]+$/, ''));
      var selsExt = decodeURI(app.document.selections[a].spec.name.replace(/(^.+)(\.[^\.]+$)/, '$2'));
      app.document.selections[a].name = toTitleCase(selsName) + selsExt;
   }

   function toTitleCase(theText) {
      var theText = theText.toLowerCase().split(' ');
      for (var i = 0; i < theText.length; i++) {
         theText[i] = theText[i].charAt(0).toUpperCase() + theText[i].slice(1);
      }
      return theText.join(' ');
   }

}
