07/17/08 267 W, 1 I - + 14 - 8 Two Cameras, One Folder

Do you shoot with two or more cameras, and want to display the digital images in the order they were shot? Here's one way to do it. First, synchronize the time and date settings on all your cameras. Second, install a program called Flash Renamer.

Next, perform these steps:

  1. Open Flash Renamer.
  2. Navigate to folder.
  3. Click the Advanced button.
  4. Click the Format tab.
  5. Select <CTIME> from the drop-down menu.
  6. Append the drop-down entry with additional text to read <CTIME>-3.
  7. Repeat and create entries for <CTIME>-2 and <CTIME>-1.
  8. Select <CTIME-3>.
  9. Click Rename!.
  10. If something goes wrong, click Undo to revert the filenames.
  11. After renaming, there may be some files that didn't rename. This occurs when two or more files were created at the same time, such as two pictures taken at the same time (according to their clock settings).
  12. Select <CTIME>-2.
  13. Click and select the files that were not renamed.
  14. Click Rename!.
  15. If some files that again don't rename, repeat with <CTIME> setting.
  16. Viola!

To rename the files again, with "normal names," then do these steps:

  1. Since we are referring to Flash Renamer Version 6.02, first change an advanced setting.
  2. Click the Settings button.
  3. Click the Advanced tab.
  4. Scroll and select ClassicCounterFormat.
  5. Activate by entering "1".
  6. Click Set.
  7. Restart the program.
  8. Click the Numbers button.
  9. Click the Add Counter tab.
  10. In the drop-menu menu field, create your own file name format. Such as: 2008-07-14-rfd-graduation-<COUNTER>-mjl
  11. Click Rename!
  12. Voila!
