  • original file name after making contactsheet.

    I made 2 photo's of the same coin (front and back). They have the name 97373r and 97373v. I have to combine them into 1 photo as below. I have to give the coin the name of the first photo without the letter r or v.. there are 4000 coins with different numbers so I want to do it in a batch.
    How do I manage it.
    I know how to batch, make a contact sheet. but... to give the file the name of the original file name of one of the coin seems to be very hard.
    Is there a script for this? Can someone help me?
    Thank you! Adriaan.

    Re: original file name after making contactsheet.

    It isn't difficult to get a document name, and you can always copy the necessary characters from there. I don't know javascript well or I would paste something. You should copy/back up your files before testing this. There's always a chance something will go wrong.

    A robust script will also have a sanity check that first goes through the files and checks for broken sequence numbers before making any changes. A script will fail if you have a messed up sequence number anywhere, even if you don't notice it. That's why you want one that first checks whether it could complete the requested operations before actually changing anything.

      batch renaming
      by oyster
      There are several good reasons to retain the name, or part of the name, given by my Canon cameras to my photos. However, I can't discover how I can use the powerful and flexible batch rename in the PS Browser to include this number in my renaming schemes. Has anyone succeeded in doing this?
