Batch card creation

Hi TeamAnki,

Is it possible to make a large number of anki cards quickly?

I have several hundred images in a folder on my computer, and I want to turn them all into anki cards in this format:

Image name

I.e. the front card shows the image.
The back shows the image name text. E.g. If the image is called 'image.jpg' the back card says 'image'

It seems to me I shouldn't have to create 100+ cards to do this. Anki must have a function to create the 100+ cards at automatically if it knows where to get the front & back data from, right?

Any help would be appreciated.

Best regards,

    I am a very beginner, may be I am wrong but, looking at :
    the addon "media imports" should also fit your need
    It could also be possible to use a spreadsheet with the list of files, to be imported into anki ?

    I am a beginner, may be my suggestion will not be efficient...
