Batch rename: Insert EXIF- or IPTC-Data

Post by jens116 » Thu Mar 01, 2007 9:34 am

Say you want to rename 100 files by inserting an EXIF- or IPTC-description into the filename. Under guarantee the procedure is interrupted by "Error reaming the file" because you have used forbidden filename character in the description.

Here my suggestion: Please replace automatically all forbidden characters with an default character such as "_". This is a much more practical solution than interrupting the whole process.

In this context another suggestion: Please make a numerical input box available in which the user can define the maximum length of the taken filename, because in many cases the length must be limited. For example, if you want to copy your images to a ISO formated CD-ROM then length is limited to 106 characters.
