If you look closely at the rename dialog in the album view (with several 
files selected!) you see a button with a blue circle icon with an 'i' in 
its center.

That button gives you an overview of what the rename dialog can do (hint: 
Options [file] Modifiers {range:from,to})

You'll find the same options in the Batch Queue Manager as part of the 
"Queue Settings" pane
