File and folder renaming on a Mac is a simple process until you need to rename hundreds or thousands of files. Then, the easy process becomes a tedious process, fraught with opportunities for mistakes. Here’s the easiest way to re-name many, many files.
Renamer is one of a growing number of Mac utilities which let you rename many files without the standard tedium which could melt your mind and alter your will to live.
Here’s the problem. You need to re-name a few files on your Mac. Easy, right? Simply select the file in the Finder, press the Return or Enter key, type in the new name.
That works perfectly for one file, maybe five or six files, perhaps a dozen files, but if you must re-name a hundred files, well, such tedium will shorten your life span.
Enter Renamer for the Mac. What does Renamer do? It renames files by the hundreds or thousands– with nothing more than a click.
This is a batch file rename utility makes it fast and easy to rename hundreds of files, photos, file extensions, or remove characters, add numbers, alter suffix and prefix.
Here’s what Renamer looks like.
Renamer comes with a system menu which means you can rename files from within the Mac’s Finder. Not all renaming events are created equal, so Renamer lets you save renaming tasks to use again later.
Yes, there’s an undo feature, but there’s also a preview so you can see the file names before they’re changed. For Mac geeks, Renamer also handles file extensions, regular expressions, and multiple rename tasks in a single task.
Most of these renaming apps do much the same thing– rename files, change case, insert characters or numbers or both, even add random characters to a list of files. If you’ve ever had to rename more than a dozen files on your Mac, you already know the value.
