File Rename Pro
File Rename Pro lets you rename a number of files quickly and easily, saving you time and effort. Drag and drop one or more folders from Finder onto the application icon or dock icon and you're ready to start renaming files.
Friendly, Fast and Complete
File Rename Pro aims to be the friendliest, fastest, most complete batch/bulk file renaming tool for OS X. With over 12 different rename options, it can handle most renaming tasks (and if it doesn't do what you need, just drop us an email).
Real-Time Preview and Undo Feature
The app displays a real-time preview of the renamed files so you can confirm the changes before actually performing any renaming. You can also use the Quick Look feature to check the contents of the files you are renaming. Should you decide after a rename that you want to revert the changes, there's an undo feature.
For Digital Photographers
The app makes it quick and easy for photographers to create detailed filenames for all their photos by adding number sequences, date information of when the photo was taken and EXIF metadata such as: width & height, aperture, ISO, focal length, F-number and shutter speed.
For Music Enthusiasts
The app is ideal for renaming MP3 audio files. As long as the audio files contain the relevant metadata, you can standardise the names of audio files, by including information such as: title, artist, album, album artist, genre, composer, year, track number, track total, disc number, disc total, bit rate, sample rate and duration.
For the more technical minded, the app includes an advanced section allowing the use of powerful regular expressions for finding and replacing in filenames.
12 Powerful Rename Options
The 12 rename options outlined below make File Rename Pro a very powerful rename tool for general file renames, for renaming photos using EXIF metadata, for renaming audio files such as MP3s using the file's id tag information, and for the more technically minded powerful Regular Expression find and replace option.
Simultaneous Rename Options
The 12 rename options can be used in conjunction with each other making complex renaming a simple task. An intuitive user interface makes it easy to see at a glance which options are currently in use.
· Prefix - add some text to the start of a filename.
· Postfix - add some text to the end of a filename.
· Keep original name - keep the original filenames.
· Delete original name - delete the original filenames.

· All lowercase, All uppercase, Title case, Sentence case, Camel case, Capitalize.
· Replace all/1st/2nd/3rd/last occurrences of something with something else.
· Insert text before or after 1st/2nd/3rd/4th/last occurrences of specific text.
· Remove all/1st/2nd/3rd/last occurrences of specific text.
· Remove a number of characters from the beginning or end of filenames.
· Add a numerical sequence to the start or end of filenames.
Date & Time Options
· Add date and/or time to the start or end of filenames. Includes over 50 date and over 25 time styles.
· Include in photo filenames metadata such as: width & height, aperture, ISO, focal length, F-number, shutter speed, artist and more.
· Include in audio filenames metadata such as: title, artist, album, album artist, genre, composer, year, track number, track total, disc number, disc total, bit rate, sample rate and duration.
· Regular Expression replace - Find and replace using the power of a regular expression engine.
If File Rename Pro notices that a filename clash is going to occur it automatically resolves the clash by ensuring each name is unique.
Note: Does not support the renaming of folders nor the editing of a file's metadata.
This application is suitable for professionals, business users and developers alike.

Ran with the latest OS Sierra 10.12.5. - Worked well for me to rename pictures and video files (JPG and MP4) with data and time of creation. Worked better than my old PC program for renaming files. Ran with the latest OS Sierra 10.12.5.
Too bad it doesn't rename folders - Also, would be great to maximize the application window so I don't have to scroll so much.
Works but clunky - This app works as advertised, but the user experience is not what it needs to be. Example: Let’s say I need to rename a folder of images in the format myname-001.jpg through 100. When the folder is dragged over, the default is 'myname - 1.jpg' (starting at 1, which will not be sequential when more thant 100 files are involved, and also with spaces in the file names which don’t work for my client’s web uploads). No problem, let’s go to preferences to change. When you do this, the folder you dragged over is now dumped, so you need to drag it again. Ok, I can live with this… After a couple of trial and errors, the preferences are finally set as I like. Files renamed, perfectly as advertised. Let’s go to the next folder. But how?? The icon that I dragged the file to does not seem to appear again. Ok, I’ll close the app and drag again. Except now, all the stuff I set up is gone, and the file number across directories is now reset at zero. My point is that this app works as advertised, and I noticed that it will rename photo files with meta data if desired. This is truly unique. There are a lot of awesome features here. Maybe there is a “correct” way to do what I did that I missed. It’s likely that I am just doing it wrong. But - when you design apps for the Apple ecosystem, the workflow should be so intuituive that instructions are not required. I think this feature filled app will benefit if the author can focus more on the user experience in the next version (and test it out on some non-techies).
Love this app! - Thank you so much for making an update that’s compatible with Mavericks! So happy I can use this app again.
