Digital camera owners, music lovers, and those who have lots of files they'd like to organize will like Flash Renamer, a batch file renaming utility that makes it easy to rename large numbers of files at once but that also does much more, such as adding or subtracting spaces, dates, characters, and other identifiers. You can even use it to alter and manage file names as you save them.

A cleanly formatted interface features a prominent preview window that displays the chosen files and folders. You can browse, search, or free select files. Optional thumbnails make it easy to see just which files you're messing with, too. Easy-to-configure presets will automatically apply conditions to certain types of files as you save them, such as saving MP3 names in Artist-Title format. There's even a Music button that gives you numerous options just for managing MP3 titles. A prominent Undo button will take you back a step before a mistake becomes permanent, which was a problem with older, less capable batch file renamers.

Flash Renamer opens quickly and runs smoothly. While loading large numbers of files or thumbnails can take some time, pressing the Escape key (Esc) instantly ends the current process and returns you to the previous screen. You can use Flash Renamer's batch renaming features to clean up your files and folders, and applying preset conditions will help you keep things neat and organized. It also very nicely asks you which icons it's allowed to install, and where, and uninstalls cleanly if you don't want to keep it. The fully functional Flash Renamer is free to try for 30 days.
