I photograph a lot of events and weddings, and i use the naming convention as outlined in Peter's book. The lab I've been using prints the whole filename (msknyc_070812_0123) but I've been having some quality control issues with them, and it looks like it's time to move on.
I can't find another lab that supports long file names, and of course it's the unique file number that gets truncated. So I am looking for two things. Is there a way to batch rename selected files to keep only the last four numbers? Or does anybody have a lab that they use that supports the long file names.
Generally, I give clients 4x6 proofs, and they use the file number for reprints.
Thanx for you help.
