17 May, 2015

Lets look at how to remove spaces between the words and replace with punctuation marks. For this tutorial i'll use Underscore ( _ ).


01. Open the folder in Bridge and select all the files to rename.

02. Open the Batch Rename window and clear all the existing filename under the New Filenames section. So we can start from fresh.

If you have done some previous Batch Rename then the last action will be displayed here.

03. Select the String Substitution from the first dropdown. By default the second dropdown is set to Original Filename, if not you can change it.

Keep an eye on the Preview section.
