Renamerox for Mac lets you quickly rename individual files or batches of files to help keep them more organized and easily identifiable. This app is especially useful for batches of digital photos and other large groups of files that typically have meaningless file names to begin with.
Clean interface: This app provides a nice interface for you to view files through, with two columns taking up the majority of the main window. The one on the right displays the files you're working on with their original names, and the one on the left displays the new file names. Buttons to access other features are readily accessible around the perimeter, and there's a space to add files across the bottom.
Nice options: You can quickly rename batches of files, choose whether to save separately or copy to a destination folder, decide what number to start sequencing with, and select the number increment you'd like file names to proceed with. Basically, you have all of the options you need to ensure your files are named in a way that facilitates locating them later.
Only drag and drop: Files can only be added to this program through drag and drop. There is no option to browse your computer for the files or folders you want to import, which might be a nice addition at some point.
Renamerox for Mac doesn't come with a lot of fancy features, but it provides just the right level of functionality, and it gets the job done that it promises to do. You can try it for free, and the only limitation is that two letters are added to the end of each new file name you generate. The unlimited version, which removes these letters costs $9.95.
Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Renamerox for Mac 188.8.131.52.
Renamerox is the simple way to rename, copy and move hundreds or thousands of files or folders with a single Drag-and-Drop using presets.
When you want to prepare files or folders for your website, blog, and backups, or when you need to organize or duplicate files, or when you make copies of your audio and image files for your iPod or iPhone, you spend valuable time copying and renaming each item by hand.
Renamerox is an universal binary application that renames, copies or moves your files and folders with a powerful engine, making your daily work flow easier. You no longer need to alter each file or folder by hand.
Why navigate through all the folders on your hard disk?
Renamerox supports drag-and-drop. An intelligent Drag-and-Drop engine makes the application easy to use. Drop as many files as you want or a folder that contains hundreds or thousands of files to the main window or to the application icon to rename, copy and move your files and folders.
In order to have different settings for different jobs, use a preset (pre-defined setting) for each job.
The powerful renaming engine allows you to:
- set a new name with index, prefix and suffix.
- add a prefix and suffix.
- add a prefix.
- add a suffix.
- add random digits as prefix.
- add random digits as suffix.
- replace a piece of the name.
- set or to change the file-extension.
- convert the file name to small or cap letters.
- convert the file name to Titlecase.
- truncate some letters from left or right.
- create a new name with Roman Numerals index, prefix and suffix.
- add Roman Numerals as prefix and suffix.
- add a string to a position you wish.
Undoing the renaming process reverts to the original names of the items.
When you drop files or folders on the Renamerox application icon, Renamerox will start up and will immediately begin the job. If the checkbox "Quit after Job" is checked in the preferences, Renamerox will quit automatically after the job is finished.
Renamerox offers several additional options to optimize the renaming process.
