In this episode of the Adobe Creative Suite Video Podcast I'll show you how to take advantage of a NEW feature in Adobe Bridge CS5 that allows you to do a Batch Rename on a folder of images, but only changing part of the names to what you want while leaving the rest of the name intact. String Substitution baby!

    Terry,

    Have to say that you are quite the convincing evangelist. I have been hesitant to move up from Photoshop Elements but just visiting your site and seeing a few tips and hints, I went ahead and got CS5 Photoshop. Now all I need to do is to learn how to make things as pretty as you do. Thanks for a great site and great info.

    Wow! I’ve been reluctant to use this feature until now. I thought it would be too easy to mess up the file names. The export to CSV is cool because I can now keep a list in Excel so I can always match edit versions to the original file. Thank you Terry!

    Couldn’t wait to try it out. And – works like magic. Mighty Bridge, kind Terry – great combination :-) Thanks!

    Thanks for the great tip!
    I was wondering how I could rename a favorite item in the “favorites” panel. I have many directories with subfolder named ‘image’. I’d like to be able to rename the favorite, without having to rename the image folder.

    thx, and keep up the excellent work!
