Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
I would like to change the file name of pictures from IMG_#### to something else. I would like to change IMG to some other 3 letters. Do you know how to do it?
This is one of those "it depends" kind of answers. I'll assume that you have copied the picture files from the camera to your computer. If not, let me know and I'll help you through that -- while possible to rename the files when they are on the camera (actually on the "compact flash" memory card), it's not a great idea.
So the pictures are in a folder somewhere on your computer, probably "My Pictures" if you're using Windows, and somewhere similarly named if you use a Mac. On windows open My Pictures, and click the filename (IMG_XXXX) once, then once again and you should be able to type a new name. On Mac, use Finder to locate the file, click it, and select Edit > Rename.
That's the hard way. Chances are you are using some program to help manage the images -- to import them from the camera, to edit them and so on. If you're using the Canon software, forget it -- use Picasa (free from Google at picasa.google.com) on Windows, or iPhoto on Mac (there's a Picasa version coming for Mac soon -- it's awesome). Once in Picasa or iPhoto, renaming should be pretty obvious.
The trick to remember is: the pictures are pretty much just regular computer files like word processor documents or similar -- you can rename them probably in a similar way that you do with other files.
Hope this helps!
