can't open my photos after renaming them

Postby paul myles » Tue Nov 15, 2016 5:19 pm

After renaming my photos using BRU on my USB Drive I am unable to open the images.

error message reads : The file does not have a programme associated with it for performing this action.Please install a programme or,if one is already installed,create an association in the default control panel.

I have been in the control panel, but can't seem to fix it.

I am using windows 7 ....windows photo viewer is on my pc.

I have no idea what I have done wrong?

can you help me open my images/photos?

kind Regards

It sounds like you've somehow inadvertently changed the file extensions.

Have you checked them ?

Hello:

@ KenP is right, I've done this by mistake myself.

If so use:

Add (7)
Suffix = .jpg or .png depending on what the file extension use to be.

Hopefully they was all the same type. If not we may have to do something else.
