Batch rename

Photo takers should get to know the “batch rename” feature in Windows Explorer. Instead of all your images having arbitrary names like IMG_0339.jpg or DSC01121.jpg, you can highlight all your photos in a folder, right mouse-click and select Rename; now type in something relevant to the photos, like Spring Break 2012. And hit Enter. Now, all of those files will be renamed with a number at the end, such as Spring Break 2012 (1).jpg, plus you can quickly see what’s inside the photo file by changing from “list” view to “large icons.” This batch rename tip can also be used for documents and other media.
