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).
Fixed a bug that sometimes prevented adding a prefix
Ratings and Reviews
This app really could use an introduction - a tutorial. Insertion of Model from EXIF data on a .jpg file worked fine. However, insertion of Model from EXIF data on a .MOV file failed, adding a prefix of [Model] before the file name — not useful. Help just opens a web page; If you don’t have internet access, you will not get help. The help entry fro regular expressions refers to the Widipedia page for regular expressions, without bothering to note which regular expression approach is used by Quik File Renamer, and as the Wikipedia points out, there are variations in regular expression usage. The Wikipedia page is not under control of the app developer, so what was there today might differ fron tomorrow’s version. The help file needs to spell out the rules for regular exressions followed by Quick File Renamer. What I missed most was a means within the program of determining when the renameing actions applied and when they did not. It would be really nice to have a “IF” action. For example, a “SKIP” action where if the defind character string matches, stop processing this file and go the the next file. With this, I could use multiple rules to work on .jpg files and not have to manually exclue or handle .MOV files where the rules did not work.
If you want simple file renaming, the app seemed OK. However, if your needs are more advanced, you will probably need to keep looking.
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!
Recording studio must have
If you an audio engineer working with muliple DAWs or even an Artist/Engineer using one program and sending your files out, this is a must. If you are sharing files between systems, users, studios or cataloging (like you should) this will make life a million times easier, making you that much cooler for not having ridiculous numbers and lettering on your file ID or letting people know that it took you 400 takes to get that guitar part just right. Rename all your stems and audio that you are sharing faster than it takes to read this lame review.
