Hi Guys,

Please i need urgent assistance i have this batch project and im lost can someone show me how to do these commands i would be greatful.

Digital cameras typically utilize naming conventions for their image file names that follow the
chronological order in which the picture was taken and saved to the camera's memory. The images
taken are usually stored in folders that are named chronologically as well. The naming conventions
used by these cameras, while useful for knowing when the pictures were taken, are not very
informative otherwise. You would typically want the image and folder names to inform you, for
instance, the name of the occasion the picture or pictures were taken. One solution often used in this
case is to use the Graphical User Interface (GUI) provided by Windows Explorer to rename these files
and folders to the desired names. This can be both time consuming and tedious, depending on the
amount of images that need to be renamed.
Command line scripts (batch programs) help computer users to efficiently automate and perform tasks
that would normally take much longer to do using the GUI. You are required to create a simple Image
Renaming Utility that will automate the task of changing the image file and folder names especially
taken by digital cameras.
Your script should:
· Prompt the user to specify:
◦ the path to the folder the where images are stored;
◦ the desired name that the folder should be renamed to;
◦ the desired name that the images should be renamed to;
◦ the file type (whether .jpg or .png) of the images.
· Print a directory listing of the original image names to a text file called “Originals” in a folder
called “Logs”.
· Perform the tasks in the above sequence effectively changing the folder name and image names
in the folder.
· prompt the user if she enters an incorrect value/string and be printed to a text file called
“error_log” in the “Logs” folder.
Please note: The renamed images should be numbered to avoid errors. Eg.: graduation_1.jpg,
graduation_2.jpg, etc.

thanks much.

You have clearly copy/pasted the whole of the project that you have been given. I'm sure you don't want someone here to actually do your project for you, do you? If so you will learn absolutely nothing.

So, the starting point would be to learn about batch file programming. If you have not been taught this (or what you know is insufficient) then use Google to find information on batch file programming so that you have at least some vague idea about where to start.

For some reason you have decided to post this on the old W95/98 forum but for XP onwards there are some different DOS commands. I suggest you assume it will be required to run on Vista or Windows 7.

Once you get to the stage that you wish to ask "specific questions", or why what you have produced so far is not working, then by all means ask but I would suggest you then post on the programming forum.

Please come back and let us know how you got on.
