Provide token for camera original frame number

Camera original raw files include a multi-digit frame number. Provide token for this frame number that we can use on rename (eg [Image Number].

Current workaround

Current work around is to rename to my custom prefix + [Image Name] then rename again to replace the camera original prefix with empty string.

Example Workaround:


  • DSC_1234.NEF => WPR-[Image Year nnnn][Image Month][Image Day of Month]-[Image Name].NEF

  • DSC_1234.NEF => WPR-20240614-DSC_1234.NEF


  • Replace "DSC_" with ""

  • WPR-20240614-DSC_1234.NEF => WPR-20240614-1234.NEF

This two step process is cumbersome.

It would be much easier to do this in a single rename:

Image Name => WPR-[Image Year nnnn][Image Month][Image Day of Month]-[Image Number]

    I upvoted this feature request.

    All the same, I rename images before importing them into CaptureOne using a A Better Finder Rename which has loads of parsing & renaming capabilities; including multi-step renaming. It's very fast.

    Also, in Nikon digital cameras you can replace the "DSC" with any 3 alphanumeric characters; in the example cited one could have images named in-camera as WPR_1234.NEF.
