Editors' review

As elegantly designed as it is simply named, this is an excellent tool for renaming multiple files at once. The tool installs quickly, and, once launched, offers several tutorials. Novices are encouraged to learn the program with the help of a detailed walkthrough, but in fact the program is quite accessible without it. Users clicking on virtually any button or section of the program are presented with an information window offering helpful hints on function and use. Guided by these hints, the renaming process is simplicity itself. Many programs in the market offer similar functionality, but we would happily recommend this one even to beginners.

    ""schme" is not flexible, difficult to use"

    August 12, 2008   |   By asegal

    Version: Batch File Rename 1.23

    Pros

    For most situations this would probably work

    Cons

    The "scheme" (which describes what to change for renaming) is difficult to use, and not very flexible.

    There is relly no documentation on this.

    If you are creating a scheme, and add something to do,

    you cannot delete it. It does not look like you can

    perform items in a specific order.

    To be more flexible, the software needs the ability to copy a certain part of a name (n char to n char, or following substring) and insert it into the new file name in a specific place.

    For example, if you had a file (using 1 for example only) lists_detail.php_s=6&c=mma007 I should be able

    to take the "6" and the "mmm007" and rename it to

    something like:

    Set_6 _Card_mmm07.php

    Use the regular expression wizard in agentransack as an example.

    "Painlessly renamed thousands of image files"

    April 30, 2007   |   By bob07080

    Version: Batch File Rename 1.23

    Pros

    This program easily and painlessly helped me to rename 1000s of photo files that I needed to prepare for our website. Our new e-commerce software requires that the "medium" and "large" photos for each product have a specific suffix. With this program, I was able to easily locate all of the files with an incorrect suffix and change them all with just a few mouse clicks. The price was easily worth the several hours it saved me if I had to search and modify the file names manually. The program also provides a preview so you can verify the changes before they are made.

    Cons

    None noted
