Publisher's Description

ReNamer is a small, yet very flexible and powerful file renaming tool that offers all the standard renaming procedures including prefixes, suffixes, replacements, case changes, as well as remove contents of brackets, add number sequences, change file extensions, etc. For advanced users, there is a PascalScript rule, which let users program their very own renaming rule.

The program allows you to combine multiple renaming actions as a rule set, applying each action in logical sequence, which can be saved, loaded and managed within the program. In addition, ReNamer supports Meta Tags, such as: ID3v1, ID3v2, EXIF, OLE, AVI, Hashing and more; has an ability to rename folders, can process Regular Expressions, and supports Unicode filenames.

I don't like the limit on the free version so I'm still using the last fully free version. I'll probably pay for the pro version one day, I can't begrudge the dude for wanting to make money off his work. I've tried a lot of renaming programs, but after becoming familiar with this one I just don't like any others, and using presets in this one is great. It makes things as simple as it can but it's really powerful.

I have used ReNamer for a long time and in some tricky situations. It has served me well, saved me a lot of time, and saved me from errors I might have made manually renaming lots of files.

I had expected to someday donate money to the program author. With the split between the Lite and Pro versions, it was time to follow through on my good intentions and pay for the product. I am finding the Pro version even better than the free version that I had been using.

Crippleware as detailed on their website. Not paying $20 just to have unlimited presets, there are definitely better options for that price (or comparable for free).

Was my favorite free file renamer, but after version 5.70 it's crippled and not even worth downloading now. If you want a pay version better options are available.

Listing crippleware as freeware is the ultimate insult. No matter how "good" a product is, to milead users with something like this is beyond reproach. I think Betanews should require the true nature of all products offered here.

I understand that developers want to be compensated for their work and have no problem with that. What I despise is situations like this and will not use a program that is crippled with the intent of getting paid. You will get a better acceptance with a full working copy with a time limit (30 days etc). I stopped using any program that requires me to "rebuy" it every time they feel like changing the version number and make some simple change just to get additional funds..

If you are a photographer (as I am) and want a good rename program for your thunbnails, then try ThumbsPlus. It is trial ware and gives you the time to see how it works and is reasonably priced. Works well and is well worth the money..

ReNamer has split up into Lite and Pro editions, where Lite is limited to non-commercial usage and has limit of a maximum of 5 rules and 5 presets at a time (you can still remove them and create new once endlessly).

The project simply could no longer survive without financial support, in order maintain the development. There is a full explanation and reasoning behind this unfortunate but a necessary move published on the forum, please read it here: http://www.den4b.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=1851

In regards to "OAKsider" and "smaragdus" comments. I am very sorry to hear about your disappointment, but I hope that it will be compensated by the continued development and support for years to come, rather than a dead project and complete abandonment of all products.

Thanks for the news, smaragdus. You are absolutely correct, sadly. The new Lite (freeware) version is limited to 5 presets and 5 rules, which is a significant downgrade (if not unusable) for many users of ReNamer. The Pro version is over $20. I believe I've donated to the author at least once, but don't expect that to go towards a Pro license.

The last free version of ReNamer was 5.71. Since then ReNamer exists in two versions- Lite, which is a severely crippled Demo, and Pro- which is the ReNamer prior to version 5.72 but costs 14.95 EUR. The Lite is absolutely useless while there are really good and even better alternatives to Pro.

Totally, absolutely, positively excellent. Tiny, infinitely customizable ReNamer that does it all. Just try it.
