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.
Hi Aaron, [...] damn, Ron's Renamer is the simplest and most effective tool I have found in years. It simply does exactly what I want it to do in an intuitive and user focused way. It has the capacity to do all the quirky things I need it to do. I love it. Thank you for saving me a mind-numbing 40+ hours of tedium! Regards Paul
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.
