    Renaming of many files.


    I have done it before, but cannot remember what to do.
    I have a bunch of pictures from the Grand Canyon, taken on different cameras and cell phones.
    All have differed names and I would like to make them all the same like:
    change from: img_001_dgep.jpg and so on
    to: GC2014_1.jpg, GC2014_2.jpg and so on.
    I know there is a simple way of doing it, but I canít remember how.
    Anyone?

    Thanks

    Test this first (I just did but you should confirm):
    In a command prompt, use the command: rename img*.txt GC2014*.txt
    Make sure you're in the correct directory in the command prompt.

    I just remembered,
    select all files and then rename the first file to what you want. any file after that will have the same name with a (1), (2) aso behind it.
    Thanks
