Mac software NameRanger




NameRanger is a simple application that will let the user batch-rename existing files in a particular folder systematically.  Just open a folder (Choose File > Open or click on the Open toolbar and drag and drop a source folder onto the drop box.) where you have files to rename, configure name settings and click on the Change button.  What you see under New file names is what you will get.  So you can work on new file names in a non-destructive way.  When you finally click on Execute, NameRanger will alter the names of the existing files in the source folder precisely according to Column 2.  Pretty simple...




What NameRanger does not do


NameRanger is designed such that it will alter the names of the existing files in the source folder.  It will not duplicates files into a new folder.
