Another example:

_0000_Layer-2.png

Thank you for writing!  

The files automatically come out like this:

scoreImage_1.psd

scoreImage_2.psd

scoreImage_3.psd  (all the way to scoreImage_550)

 

I want them to come out with the following numbers:

scoreImage_300.psd

scoreImage_301.psd

scoreImage_302.psd  (all the way to scoreImage_850.psd)

Let me know if more infomation would be helpful.  Thank you again!

You may wish to check/tick the "Preserve filename in XMP metadata" option so that you can recover the original filenames if something goes wrong. It may also be a good idea to work on duplicated files, just in case.

 

Do double-check using the Preview button to ensure that all files will be renamed as expected.
