    Exclamation Batch renaming files

    For me to be able to upload pics to eBay I have to change all the images from .JPG (upercase) to .jpg (lowercase). Becuase I list alot on eBay, I need to do this often, is there any way I can do this faster? Any help is apprectiated.

    You can use one of the GUI tools like:

    gprename
    purrr
    pyrenamer
    gwenrename
    thunar (file manager)
    gnome-commander (file manager)
    krename

    Or if you want to do it in the CLI, then in Ubuntu, you can try the Perl based rename utility:
    Code:
    cd path/to/dir
    prename --no-act 's/\.JPG$/.jpg/' *.JPG
    If you are looking for a more portable code or want to rename files recursively, then check out BashFAQ 030 (link in my signature).
