Copy parts of folder name to file name

Postby noen79 » Tue Aug 10, 2010 2:19 pm

I Would love to have the function where you can copy parts of the foldername to the beginning of the file names in that folder.
ex:
folder: holiday in GB various locations
Files: dcim1.jpg dcim2.jpg
after renaming: Holiday in GB dcim1.jpg holiday in GB dcim2.jpg

This would make renaming photo and video A LOT easier for me.

Best regards Noen79

PS: thanks for a great program : :D

Hello

that should be possible with the "Append Folder Name (9)" function in BRU.

thanks

But only in two renaming actions.

FROM:
dcim1.jpg
TO:
Holiday in GB dcim1.jpg


DO 1.)
Append Folder Name (9) - Name: Prefix - Sep: space
Rename
You get: Holiday in GB various locations dcim1.jpg


DO 2.)
Repl.(3)
Replace: " various locations"
With: ""
Rename
You get: Holiday in GB dcim1.jpg


Note: always test this with copies of your real files.
