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
Just about ANY renaming strategy you can think of is available here and VERY simple to use. Rename entire folders of files in a snap according your your spec. One of my most used production workflow apps.
makes simple renaming complicated
Or just doesn’t work. It’s supposed to use RegEx (Regular Expressions) like wildcards “*” and “?” but those don’t work. Also doesn’t recognize spaces when renaming. If you type a spacebar at he end of the new name, it deletes it. I just want to replace a “.” with a space. HELLO? This is BASIC stuff and I’ve been using file renamers long before I got a Mac.
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!!!!
