Quick Look: 'A Better Finder Rename' for Batch Renaming Files

See also: Batch Renaming Files for Photography using 'A Better Finder Rename'.

I just downloaded A Better Finder Rename by publicspace.net.

There are way too many features to list here. In a nutshell:

  • 15 different ways to change file names including support for image EXIF tags and music files.
  • General purpose regex support.
  • The Subfolders and their contents feature is super handy—just operate on the top-level folder instead of having to select files.
  • Changes are previewed, which makes it easy to avoid mistakes.
A Better Finder Rename.app: 15 ways to rename

Example: simple text replacement

Simple text replacement can save you headaches over the Finder’s method by being smarter—ignoring case, one or all occurences, ignoring file extension etc. Basically you can avoid a big “ooops” a lot easier.

A Better Finder Rename.app: simple text replacement

Example: date/time

Prettyu well sorted out here, but I have a couple of minor grips: things like Add a trailing space after the date should allow a character choice (eg "-" instead of a space). As such, it would require another replace operation (replace first space with a dash).

And I’d rather enter the format by typing it in, like “YYYY-MMDD-". But all in all it’s very well done.
