Search engine optimization requires that image files have unique names.
When you are dealing with dozens or hundreds of images, maintaining correct file naming protocols while optimizing names for search engines can become a long, labour-intensive task.
To overcome this daily challenge, I created an excel-based application to read and list image files and allow for a quick, semi-automated way to rename them.
The software can automatically expand shortcodes embedded in the original filename, or added via the interface.
The software indicates and prevents any duplicate filenames (a big no-no in SEO) and updates all the file names with a single click. This little piece of software has saved me many hours of non-creative labour.
