Ubuntu – Problem exporting from shotwell (imagenes with same name on differents dates)


I have about 1100 pics on shotwell.
I need to export all.

so I select all, and export them to a folder.
The problem is that differents images have the same name and because it was on differents events inside shotwell this is not a problem but when I export them… it result only in about 800.

if I export them in batches of let say… 100.. it ask sometime if I replace an existing one… but it does not allow me to give another name!
(also I suspect it is not asking me on every one)

any ideas???

thank you very much!

  • You can use pyRenamer. With pyRenamer you can change the name of several files at the same time easily.

    To install pyRenamer, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

    sudo apt-get install pyrenamer

    Or, just click pyRenamer Install comixcursors-lefthanded

    Once installed, you can rename your files, and then export them as you want.
