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
a MUST HAVE utility for media content creators!
This is one of those simple but brilliant tools that you don’t even think you need until you get in a jam and realize that you DO (and quick!). While OSX does have a native renaming function - it is bare bones to say the least, and leaves much to be desired. Quick File Renamer is super-intuitive, easy to navigate, and can perform both simple and crazy complex tasks with relative ease. I work in sound design, so renaming audio files so that I can locate what I need is crucial. Also some programs I use will only support x amount of characters in a file name, so this saves the day there as well. I love that the program even has a little preview window so you can see what the changes will actually look like before you commit. Hats off to the developers!
Just get it and keep in your utility arsenal, because your need for it will pop up way more often than you think - I promise!
Great replacement for FileNamer
My old program hasn’t been updated to work on new systems so I had to find an alternative. This worked quickly and smoothly. It does what it says it does. I paid $20 for the first app and $3 for this one so I feel like I got a great deal.
I often need to batch rename files quickly and add sequences or details.
I searched for hours for a way to do this on my Mac - even reinstalled my operating system because multiple file rename is supposed to be an option for newer versions, to no avail. Downloaded this, and wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Did 900+ photos at a time with zero problems. So worth it!!
