Hi guys!
Probably not all of you know that LoViewThumb comes with an handy multirenaming/numberizing feature for everyone to easly catolgue many images...
I'll try to explain here how to do and plz feel free to ask everything you have in mind since due to my poor english that will be much than a real Tutorial some sort of walkthroguht in the function that will gro up answering to users questions and ideas!
Lets start!

1 - Open your favorite folder of images with the LoViewThumb "Open Dir"
2 - Use the "Numberize" (LMB) button to numberize the photos to preserve image timeline

Now your images was numerized from oldest to newest so you can change the names without problem aslo if you like to put same name for more tan one file -

TIP: if you have to suspend your work or get some weird system crash you can continue your multi-renaming work simply reopening the directory where the images was stored and than press again on numberize button (LMB) to choose "PREVIOUSLY Numberized" to tell LoViewThumb that the images was already numberize so the program have to work on them considering to ignore the numberized first part of the names while renaimng...

TIP2: you also can remove numberization with RightMouseClick on numberization button and chooisng "Remove file numberization"

Note: Also consider to dont play with numberization too much...use it only for the reason it was created so press the button only once per session if possible...

3 - now you can easly rename your pics selecting the images to rename using RightMouseButton(I remember you that clicking with left mouse button you open the image under LoView) or the "Select PATTERN" button or playing with "Select ALL" "Select TOGGLE" buttons and pressing on the "Rename" button to easly rename ALL in once the selected images or you can also rename each image selected separately if you like.

3a - You can also rename images without file Numberzation in that case if you choose same name for all the pictures LoView will automatically rename each picture with same name but will add a numberization for the renamed picture appended at the end of the file name..

Ok thats all I think, any question, suggestion or any feedback was really appreciated!
In the lastest LoView Suite release(2.90) I've reworked that functions to become more user friendly and I think that was rather usefull or at least to me was really usefull and easy to use...

@Tuxedo

LoViewThumb is getting better

One thing I would like to see is a batch rotate option, just a simple 90 clockwise(right) or anticlockwise(left). eg. choose some thumbs, click a batch rotate gadget, choose the diection and let it get on with it.

Edit: A small bug...

I set the tooltypes to:

WINDOW_WIDTH=1920
WINDOW_HEIGHT=1080
WINDOW_X=0
WINDOW_Y=0

It only opened a window 1879x1017.

Thank you for feature request.

The resize issue wasnt a bug but a feature...LoVieThumb always resize window to avoid blank spaces according to thumb defined size...

@Severin

well...two choice:

1 - resize window relatively thumb sizes
2 - resize thumb sizes relatively window size

I preferred point 1...

In what way do you like window resize?

Choice 3 add border around outer edge to even out the excess window size verses thumbs size

@Tuxedo

The numberize function in the thumber is very nice! But I can't use the Prev Numberized button, because the # is deactivated after numberizing. I have to choose my pic folder again to reload it, and then the # button is activated. But then the Prev Numberizing function doesn't work anymore :(
By the way: I think we need a reload/refresh button, e.g. when I rename a pic manually, to sort the dir new. What do you think?

I choosed that behaviour since file numberization was a bit risky...and also if you use it you dont need it anymore probably so reload the pics to remove the file numberization wasnt so boring since really not done so often(probably quite never)...so taht behaviour was much safer than to have Numberization button always on...

Maybe it can change in future who knows...

@Tuxedo

But what is the exactly function of PREVIOUSLY NUMBERIZED? I can use it before I use the numberize function, but nothing happens. After numberizing I have to reload the dir to use the PREVIOUSLY NUMBERIZED function, but nothing happens, too. I thought this function renames my pics with the names they had before the numberizing!?

And again: I hope we get a reload button to reload the actual dir. Sometimes I rename pics or edited it with ArtEffect or something else and wanna see the new ones. Now I have to use the open dir button and click the ok button to reload the dir. A single button for reloading were nice :)

@gurus2000

The exact behaviour of the "PREVIOUSLY NUMBERIZED" button was to use it to resume your multi-rename session preserving numberized suffix.

If you dont tell LoViewThumb that you have loaded a numberized list of picutres when you multi-rename pics you lost the suffix wioth the numbers...

LoViewThumb cant know that you have loaded a numberized list of picture if you dont tell him...

After you tell LoViewThumb taht pics was already numberized you can also remove numerization, remove numberization or multi-rename pics without loose the numberization suffix...

The numberized button was disabled after using it for security reasons...

For the reload button I'll consider it in future...

Thank you and hope that now that function was more clear...if you(or someone else) have any other question feel free to ask!

@Tuxedo

Thanks for the declaration. Please try this:

1.) I have a dir with 3 pics. Load it with LoViewThumb and click at the # button with the left mouse button. Now you get 01, 02 and 03. The # button is disabled. Reload the dir and click at the # button with the right mouse button. Now the "Remove file numberization" works fine. When I have to use "The files loaded was already numberized"?

2.) After numberizing and removing the numberizing, please numberize the pics again. Then the names are 1, 2 and 3. The first time it was 01, 02 and 03.

3.) Remove one of the three pics from the list. Numberize the pics and reload the dir to get the third pic back. Now the "Previously..." button has no function! When I understand it right, then the third pic should rename to 03?!

@gurus2000

hi!

1 - Sorry I have explained bad last time probably...the exact use of the "PREVIOUSLY NUMBERIZED" button was only to resume multi-rename session...
To remove file numberization, that was supposed that will be chosen only if the files was already numberized, so the program assumes that the files was numberized itself no need to specify that...

2 - that was a stupid bug no its solved, happens because the remove numberize button puts at zero a var that have to stay with its original value...

3 - no, that wasnt the meaning of the button...the "previously numberized" button hve to be used to "resume" a rename session it wont check if the fiels was numberized or not...imagine that:

a - you have 2000 pics from yuor last trip in Japan
b - you numerized them to have an exact chronogical order also after rename them
c - you start rename the pics but you have to stop since you are late or have to go out for some reason so shutdown LoViewThumb and your computer...

d - you come back home and want to continue rename session and turn on Amiga/LoViewThumb
e - now if you simply select pic(s) and will rename it(them) you have to rewrite all name and also number instead only name and preserve automatically numerize...so you have to press the (in)famous button and tell LoViewThumb that the files loaded was already numberized so you can continue like you never stopped..

That behaviour was need to me since LoViewThumb make all actions realtime so avery time you numberize/rename/or so some pics it was imediately wrote on HDD...so after numberizing you have to only rename if possible...for example if you will delete a pic from the list you can continue rename but the number that you deleted was lost(so if you want continuosly numbers the delete action have to be done before numberizing)...

I know that wasnt exactly so user friendly but since I made the program primarly for myself, for me was usefull also in that way...

Hope that now all was clear but if not ask again :)

@Tuxedo

Maybe you should change "PREVIOUSLY NUMBERIZED" to one of:

(continue|resume) (sequence|numbering|number sequence)

I personally prefer "Resume Numbering", it says exactly what it does and it avoids the word "numberize" (US spelling) or "numberise" (real English).

or if you want silly try:

"Continue to advance the previously stopped file numberiseificationalosity from the peak of detectifiable numberyness".

The manner in which they have depicted the hoodlums and the wrongs in their book is charming. Each circumstance or issue should be settled with catastrophe and students should get thesis writing service to solve their study-related issues. Furthermore, this article has clarified it well. I like them for sharing this commendable article.
