Quick File Renamer
By Rebrand Software
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
A simple and safe file renaming solution for everyone, with a beautiful Retina interface!
Rename your photo collection using meaningful names. Organize your MP3 or iTunes music library with artist, song, album and track numbers. Access the EXIF metadata in your digital photography and use it to name your files.
Simply browse for files, use our wildcard search, or drag and drop them into the app!
Renaming is fast and you see your changes as you type. "Simple Mode" allows you to use easy presets to change the file name, rename music files, rename with EXIF photo data and more. "Advanced Mode" gives you precise control with the following actions:
Change file name
Remove file name
Add sequential numbers with zero padding
Insert dates (file creation, file modification, custom)
Insert Audio Metadata (MP3 and AAC)
Insert Photo Metadata (Exif)
Regular Expression (RegEx) search and replace
Actions are performed in sequential order, giving you total control over the resulting file names. Once you have created the perfect set of actions they can be saved for later use.
Safety checks are performed before renaming to ensure that the new file names are legal and that there are no naming conflicts with existing files. You can rename the original files or automatically create copies with the new names.
Need to rename directories? Switch to directory mode in the preferences window and you can do just that!
Based on your feedback and reviews here are some quick tips:
-For the fastest possible renaming, select the "Rename original files" option (now the default). Otherwise the app will make a copy of the originals and give them the new name.
-The app is not a metadata editor, it can only use the existing metadata in the files to give them a new name. (Try the MP3 preset to quickly rename your music files so they sort nicely in finder).
What's New in Version 4.7
Fixed a bug that sometimes prevented adding a prefix
This app is so easy to use. It’s great to be able to rename a batch of files in a blink of an eye!!!!
I bought this thing and it doesn’t work.
I downloaded this app in it's trial version. But I noticed that several functions have been disabled. So I decided to pay for the commercial version. I have several thousand AIFF sound files that don't have the extension in the name and wanted to append .AIFF extension. I followed the nearly useless instructions and could see that I had set up correctly, but the rename button was greyed out and nonfunctional. So I tried using the command-R keystroke and that didn't work either. I later noticed that the “Test” function was on and so I turned that off and still, I couldn’t actually rename the files.
I went to the Rebrand Software site for support and posted a question on the site. I never got a response. Then I realized that although the site let me post the support question and asked me for my email that I would not get a response. The next day I tried to “contact” the owner directly at the "Need to contact me directly? Please click here.” link. That took me to a site called “getsatisfaction.com.” I spent two days trying to get a message posted and it didn't allow that to work either. I had to create an account at this other site BEFORE I could post my request for support. I finally got that accomplished but have still not gotten any solution.
The money spent is not the problem. The problem with this product is that it doesn’t work correctly, or at very least, the instructions are inadequate and I can’t get it to work. Something this simple should be completely intuitive to use and itiot proof. This isn’t Photoshop ot Video editing.
I am now writing this ridiculous review because I’ve spent 3 days trying to get a $2.99, one function, application to work and it doesn’t. Furthermore… Although I’m sure Mike Gibson is a good guy, I shouldn’t have to chase after Mike for threee days, to get a response. At the moment, I can’t recommend this product.
The advanced tab does not allow any rename actions to be added to the list.
