How to Rename Many Pictures at Once

Gaviri Universal SearchOS has many useful features that are not found in other search engines. One of these is the ability to rename many files at once (batch rename files). It is very easy to do this from Gaviri Universal SearchOS, here are the steps:

1. Search for the files
2. Select the files you want to rename
3. Rename them

We will go through these steps in a minute. Batch Rename is useful for easily renaming all those non-descriptive "image0012.jpg" naming conventions used by digital cameras. To rename all the non-descriptive names to something you can remember, like "Summer vacation 2007, do the following:

do a search like "image0", or "DSC0", or "img001" or whatever naming convention your digital camera uses. My digital camera uses "DSC0..." so I am using "DSC0" as my search term:


Next, Right-Click any file in the result set and select "Select All" if you want to rename all the pictures. Otherwise, CTRL-Click to select non-contigous files (press and hold down the Control key and click on the selected files in the result set).


After selecting the files you want to rename, right-click in the result set and select Rename


Enter the descriptive name you would like to rename the pictures to, example: "Summer vacation to florida 2007" and click OK. 


Gaviri Universal SearchOS will batch rename all the files to the new name and append 1 - x to each file to make the filename unique. Now search for the new name "summer vacation to florida" and you will see your renamed files!


That's all there is to it!
