Photo and Sequential Files

(Richard) #1

Has anyone else had problems with the new Nick Cates Photo Stack and the Batch sequential numbered files. Have not been able to get it to work. Single file showing of the url I enter shows but not the following files. Have numbered two ways test - 1.jpg, test - 2.jpg and test-1.jpg and test-2.jpg.
Any ideas please.

Thanks @scottsteven for tagging me on this! Richard forgive me for not prodiving coded examples in the first place for sequential images, this was entirely my mistake. I’ve now added much more details on what works and what doesn’t for file names in the Photo manual. But here’s the nitty gritty:

Currently, sequential image file endings must be in a specific format. Here’s what will work, and what will not. - 1.jpg” - Works!” - Fail
" 1.jpg" - Fail
"" - Fail

Also note, the number “1” cannot be in the folder naming. - 1.jpg” - Works! - 1.jpg” - Works!” - Fail
"" - Fail

In a future update, I on making the naming more forgiving, but for now, it’s strictly " - 1.jpg", " - 2.jpg", " - 3.jpg", etc. Photos for mac does this name formatting automatically.

Just wanted to touch base with this thread again, Photo 1.0.3 now has Batch sequential filenaming that’s FAR less strict. Any image naming that ends with “1” is now acceptable, and name your folders whatever.
