Rons Renamer is a Windows utility for renaming many files in one go, using rules like search and replace. Batches of files can be 10's to 1000's, and span multiple directories, with an unlimited number of rules that can be combined to achieve almost any result.
Rons Renamer has been designed from concept to execution to be simple and fast to use, without compromising on power; in short to make a difficult job as easy as possible.
There are 15 easy to use renaming rules (See Feature List). Any number of rules can be combined in any order into rule sets which can be saved to give instant access to frequently used renaming tasks.
Tested with tens of thousands of files, and designed for easy operation the job will be done in no time.
Collections of photographs or music can be renamed using Exif and MP3 tags contained in the file. Music files generally contain an album name, song title, band or singer etc., while a pictures contain a date and place where the picture was taken etc.
This valuable information can be extracted and applied to the name.
Any rule set can be saved and can be exported as a complete script for automation purposes.
Aaron, full recommendations on the "Ron's Renamer" program. Unbelievable it really provides full versatility processing changes on all files one swift sweep, without delays or falling on its head, all of which all my camera software Panasonic, Fuji and now Canon utterly failed to provide.
Why not give it a try? The download is free and the installation simple.
The functionality to read EXIF tags (quickly) came from Simon McKenzie on The Code Project.
