Shameless name-dropping

Friday, March 04, 2005

A speedy, effortless way to neatly rename scores of similar files in Windows Explorer is to drag a box around them, right-click on the first file in the set and choose 'rename'. The ensuing files will be renamed automagically, making use of the name given to the initial file and a consecutively numbered appendage in brackets i.e. Image (01).jpg, Image (02).jpg and so on.

If your appellative requirements are a bit more complex, Flexible Renamer (for PC users) and Renamer4Mac (surprisingly for Mac users) are the tools for you. In addition to consecutive renaming schemes they support string and number additions, deletions and substitutions, MP3 tag editing, case switching and much more.
