Better Rename 8 is the most complete renaming solution available on the market today. That’s why, since 1996, tens of thousands of hobbyists, professionals and businesses depend on Better Rename to organize and maintain files.

Better Rename's user interface supports complex renaming tasks without sacrificing ease and speed of use. Simply drag the files you want to rename straight from the Finder into the large preview table or the application icon.. or use our Finder context menu and hot key.

INSTANT PREVIEW

The Instant Preview feature eliminates guesswork and costly errors and helps you find the right settings quickly and accurately by providing as-you-type feedback.

MOST COMPLETE FEATURE SET AVAILABLE

Better Rename offers a complete set of renaming actions that are organized into 15 categories covering all the text, character, position, conversion and truncation features that you would expect, but it does not stop there.

MADE FOR YOUR DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHERS

Photographers use the advanced sequence number and date & time features to clean up their portfolios or prepare photos for delivery to their client. Better Rename knows how to extract EXIF shooting date and time information from digital camera images and exploit them in creating sequence numbers or adding time and date information to the file name. Support for all major RAW formats extends this to professional photographers. Version 8 now also deals gracefully with multiple shots captured in the same second.

POWER USERS WELCOME

System administrators, web masters and other power users will appreciate the presence of advanced features, such as regular expression support, conversion to Windows NTFS/SMB compatible names, the ability to import file names from a database, a spreadsheet or any other source that can produce plain or tab-delimited text files. The ability to save a record of the current and new file names greatly facilitates tracking your files.

LOVES YOUR MUSIC

Music lovers can use the built-in MP3/AAC support to exploit the id3 meta-data tags embedded in their music files to create their own naming schemes for their music collection. Meta-data information from mp3, aac and iTunes music store files are supported.

COMBINE MULTIPLE RENAMING STEPS

The multi-step renaming feature allows multiple renaming steps to be combined to deal with complex renaming jobs in a single operation. Unlike other tools, Better Rename allows any number of renaming actions to be combined, re-ordered, copied and deleted.

DROPLET AUTOMATION

Self-contained droplet mini-applications allow recurring tasks to be automated. Save your current settings to a droplet and apply them instantly by dropping the files onto the droplet icon. Double click to edit the settings.

INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH ENGINE

Version 8 takes file renaming to a new level of sophistication by introducing an advanced 64-bit multi-threaded renaming engine that solves many problems that other file renamers simply leave unaddressed. The database-backed renaming engine automatically resolves file name conflicts using a range of configurable parameters and prevents deadlocks. We care about such things so that you don't have to.
