I would like to view images using image-dired, then rename them. What I do at the moment:

  • Open image-dired with my directory of choice.

  • Mark an image that I want to rename.

  • In the corresponding dired+ buffer, I run wdired-change-to-wdired-mode, then rename the marked file.

Now image-dired still shows the renamed file, but it cannot be marked again in case I want that. The reason is that image-dired doesn't know about the rename.

Is there a way to rename images so that image-dired picks up the changes? Or is there a way to quickly refresh image-dired to pick up all changes in the current directory?

  • If you refresh the buffer with g, aka revert-buffer, does that fix it?

  • @lawlist Running revert-buffer in *image-dired* gives "Buffer does not seem to be associated with any file" (makes sense). g in *image-dired* is not for refresh.
