    Default Batch renaming program

    Anybody got any recommendations for a Windows program that will rename multiple files all at the same time? I see a few available when I Google it, but I was hoping not to just go in blind.

    Thanks.

    What kind of files? I'm curious as to what people use as well. You can batch rename in the Windows OS but you don't get much control.

    I batch rename my digital photos for archiving purposes. I have been using ACDSee's photo manager for years. It allows all kinds of naming conventions and numbering sequences. Plus you can change file atributes like "date modified" and the EXIF data associated with the image. For example, you know how after you've edited your pictures in Photoshop, the date modified changes on the file? Well you can change it back to when you took the picture using a batch routine. I'm sure lots of other photo management programs do stuff like that too. I've just gotten comfortable with that one.

    I've been using Ant Renamer for a few years. It's free and works pretty well for my purposes.

    If you have photoshop you can create a blank action and then do file > automate > batch then choose your blank action, your source (generally all your files in 1 folder) then your destination folder and then your batch naming options.

    I've used BetterFileRename, simple and easy to use, but it's not free.
