Photo Naming Assistant Pro was designed to give consistent and meaningful names to digital photo files while minimizing the work on the user's part. The application is customizeable to allow flexibility in building the photo names.
The user starts by selecting a folder with photos and then the application automatically identifies those photos that have not been named presenting those to the user for naming. A resizeable thumbnail of the current photo is shown. The user then chooses a photo naming pattern and specifies a base name that are used in constructing the photo name. Finally the user chooses whether to rename just the current photo or rename all the rest of the unnamed photos in the current folder. The application automatically ensures that each photo gets a unique name.... More Info »
A photo naming pattern describes how to build a photo name. A pattern can include a combination of the picture taken date, photo metadata, parts of the original file name, where to insert the base name, and where to insert the integer that makes the resulting name unique. Sixteen photo naming patterns are included and the user can create unlimited additional patterns. New patterns can be entered by hand but dialogs are provided to make the task easier. While a different pattern can be used for each photo, to facilitate rapid naming, the most recently used pattern is the default.
A base name is usually used for multiple photos and would be something like "Mt Rainier" or "Mule Deer". The user can either type in a new base name or select from a list of base names that are already in use in the current folder.
Photo Naming Assistant Pro can preview JPG, JPEG, JPE, TIF, TIFF, BMP, GIF, PNG, RLE, and DIB files. However the application can be configured to work with any file extension but there won't be any photo preview for unsupported graphics file types.
The setup package installs a full user guide and help file that includes two tutorials and many photo naming pattern samples.
