Is there an app that can do this:

I want to 'manually' reorganise the sequence of a bunch of thumbnails, and then rename them according to the new sequence (i.e. so they will sort in the new order in file manager by name).

Using just a list view would be okay if it cant be done with thumbnail view

A renamer, file manager, or a coding snack maybe?
thanks, Tom

Tom

This is exactly what I needed few days back.

Adobe Bridge (comes w/ Photoshop) is the program that can do this. Browse to the folder that has the images, sort them and go to Tools -> Batch Rename...

I asked for free alternatives in IRC channel and got no replies.

maybe not as pretty as Adobe Bridge but Irfanview can do this, just go to the thumbnail mode and arrange the images then use the batch rename command.

I can recommend Lupas Rename 2000 (long discontinued, but with the greatest amount of options I have seen so far on a self explaining screen).

Rename whatever you want to whatever you want with preview of results, undo and anything else.

Another great program to find, sort, rename and almost anything else is HFT (Handy File Tool). Lets you - for example - collect 125 files from 89 directories and do things to them like moving them to ONE new directory, rename or delete them and so on.

And yes, I still have to find a feature IrfanView doesn't have.
The more things stay, the more they change the sane.

It was on my list anyway, so when I saw this thread I just added it: XYplorer 8.50 will have Manual Sorting (in all views, even in Details view!).

(A BETA version is already available now for registered users.)

sounds great :-*
as mentioned above this would be especially helpful in thumbnail view (for many people).

edit/ off to get the beta . .
