Quickly and easily rename files and folders
With Rename Expert you can quickly and easily rename files and folders. The program offers a variety of innovative features to create consistent and, above all, meaningful names. With a few simple clicks, you can number files and folders, shorten long file names, rename file extensions and much more.
Rename Expert supports metadata such as EXIF, IPTC and ID3. By using metadata, you can organize, sort, and rename files automatically. Despite its diversity of functions, the program is very easy to use. With Rename Expert, meaningless file names are a thing of the past!
Simultaneously rename folders along with subfolders and files
Allows the batch renaming of any number of files and folders in one go (incl. network support).
Filter and sort functions
The extensive filter and sort functions can be applied to many attributes (e.g., the file extension, date created, metadata like image dimensions), allowing the exclusion of files and folders.
Use CSV files for naming
CSV files – for example, exported from Excel, can be used flexibly for naming files and folders. The old and new name can be composed of several columns.
Move and rename files in one step
In addition to renaming, files can also be moved or copied into subfolders whose naming is based on metadata (e.g., photo taken date, artist, album, etc.).
Many special functions
Rename Expert offers a variety of specialized functions, such as adding the checksum (MD5, SHA, CRC32) of the file contents to the file name, the encryption of folder and file names, or the possibility of adding random characters to file names as well as to rename files completely random.
Real-time preview of the new file names
All changes are shown in real-time and checked for errors (e.g., duplicate names) to avoid possible conflicts.
Rename files using numerous metadata
Metadata (EXIF, IPTC, ID3, etc.) can be used for the naming of files (e.g., for images, video files or audio files).
Numbering of folders and files
Files and folders can be numbered sequentially or in random order. An existing numbering can be easily overwritten or adjusted.
Create file names automatically from file contents
Rename Expert can automatically rename text files based on a part of the file contents (e.g., to include data from TXT, XML, HTML, or log files).
Rename file extensions
Rename Expert allows you to arbitrarily change file extensions. (e.g., jpeg to jpg). You can add, remove, rename or adjust the case of file extensions.
Shorten long file names / Edit file paths with more than 260 characters
With Rename Expert you can rename files or folders that exceed a path length of 260 characters, and therefore can no longer be edited using the Windows Explorer.
Save rename-settings as profile
Action Lists allow the combining of actions (replacing the first word, moving a part of the name, adjusting the case) and can be stored along with additional settings as a profile for repeated use.
