      Handling of Duplicates by PhotoRenamer 4.0b

There are two cases where Renaming can lead to equivalent file names:
  1. Images taken in Burst Mode

  2. Burst Mode ( also called Continuous High Speed) is a shooting mode which allow several shots by second. This means that the Exif MetaData 'Date and Time' could be the same for several photos.

  3. Use of Poorly Discriminant Mask

  4. Another situation where photos names can be the same is the use of poorly discriminant renaming Mask. Suppose you have a directory with all the photos taken during the wedding of your best friend and you decide to use the mask '%Y-%b-%d' containing the Year (%Y), Month (%b) and Day (%d) of the event. In this case, all the pictures will share the same name !!!

In these situations, PhotoRenamer 4.0b performs a smart renaming by adding a sequential suffix to the name(s) build using the Renaming Mask.
And, with the mask '%Y-%m-%d - Olivia and Ryan ', this gives the following results:



A. Suffix Option of PhotoRenamer 4.0b

The first image with a shared name is called the Duplicate Root File. The other image(s) that share the same name is (are) called the Duplicate File(s).
The suffix added automatically by PhotoRenamer 4.0b can be selected amongst 15 different formats:

 Suffix Description
 %d Simple Suffix Mask
 -%d Simple Suffix Mask (with Dash Separator)
  (%d)TD> Simple Suffix Mask in brackets
 %01d Suffix Mask with 1 digit
 -%01d Suffix Mask with 1 digit (with Dash Separator)
 (%01d) Suffix Mask with 1 digit (in brackets)
 %02d Suffix Mask with 2 digits (padded with 0)
 -%02d Suffix Mask with 2 digits (with Dash Separator)
 (%02d) Suffix Mask with 2 digits (in brackets)
 %03d Suffix Mask with 3 digits (padded with 0)
 -%03d Suffix Mask with 3 digits (with Dash Separator)
 (%03d) Suffix Mask with 3 digits (in brackets)
 %04d Suffix Mask with 4 digits (padded with 0)
 -%04d Suffix Mask with 4 digits (with Dash Separator)
 (%04d) Suffix Mask with 4 digits (in brackets)


This option can be modified using the button 'Rename Setting' in the Ribbon Category 'Photo Rename'.

B. Suffix Scope Option of PhotoRenamer 4.0b

PhotoRenamer 4.0b proposes an additional option to differentiate the two types of files (Duplicate Root and Duplicate)
  1. Add Suffix to All Files, including the Original

  2. Using this option, The Duplicate Root File and the Duplicate File(s) are renamed using the suffix template, incremented for each file.



    The Duplicate Root File and the Duplicate File(s) are renamed using the suffix template, incremented for each file.

  3. Add Suffix Only to Duplicate Names

  4. Using this option, the Duplicate Root File keeps its name without suffix and the Duplicate File(s) are renamed using the suffix template, incremented for each file.



This option can be modified using the button 'Duplicate Files Handling' in the Ribbon Category 'Options'.

C. File Colouring Option of PhotoRenamer 4.0b

Please note the different colors used by PhotoRenamer 4.0b to differenciate the Duplicate Root File and the Duplicate File(s) in two different colors.



These colors can be modified using the button 'Duplicate Files Handling' in the Ribbon Category 'Options'.
