OK, what if you want to rename 10 files or folders; say, by changing the prefix, and adding a numbered sequence? That takes a bit more time. The latest versions of OS X make it a bit easier to rename multiple files, but doing a rename scheme on hundreds or thousands of files requires this app.
7 Ways To Rename It
Through the years I’ve collected a few Mac utilities which do what Rename It does. Rename files and folders. Not one at a time, but hundreds or thousands at a time.
Few such renaming utilities are as simple and elegant to use, and come with a nominal price tag. That’s Rename It.
Alright, here’s what it does and how it does it. Rename It uses seven different naming schemes so every renaming project can be handled with ease.
For example, you can add text to a name, remove text from a name, or replace the text in a name with another string of text.
Rename It lets you add sequential numbers so hundreds of files or folders can be renamed with a proper numbering scheme. It also lets you add a date to the name– any date, current date, even the file creation date or date modified date.
Rename It even allows you to change the case within a name– from upper to lower or back. Or specific words. The app also lets you replace the original files with renamed files, or move the newly renamed files, or simply copy the originals with the new names.
Settings from one batch are remembered to another but there’s no way to save multiple settings to be used again. Rename It is worth the few dollars in the price tag, but if you want the cat’s meow of renamer apps, try A Better Finder Rename.
