OK, thanks.

I haven't done it for a while (club activity is minimal in winter) but I'm 
pretty sure that I did it in digikam - where I could define a new folder name 
and a new naming pattern at the same time.  It saves a lot of time.  This time 
I only had a dozen photos to scale and name, but when you have 50 it's a 
different thing.

Like most people, I wish that we had got the functionality back before 
worrying about additional features.  I can see which is sexy for devs, though
