Image naming and batch renaming

On this page

Batch renaming your images before you upload them will help you create 360 spins and 3D spins as you intended. Mass rename tools can also be helpful for adding keywords to your image files, improving your SEO.

You can rename files one-by-one in the Sirv web app, but when renaming many images, it's faster to use a batch rename program.
