Flash Renamer - For me: still the best!
« on: December 18, 2014, 01:23:30 AM »
For some time already I have been looking at many file renamers. Some of the my 'key-requirements' are:

1. drag and drop
2. userfriendly /  intuitive interface
3. regex support
4. portable
5. multiple renames in a single preset (preset: 1st do this, 2nd do that, 3rd do so-and-so)
6. a list of 'corrections' in a kind of batch replace 'text file'  
   (a list with renames like: mp3 -> MP3, dvd -> DVD, but also things like jun00 -> -06-2000)
7. advanced rename features: such as rename files after parent folders

Some screenshots below.

Regretfully, except for patches, from what I know, the tool will not be followed by a new version.

After 15 years of updating, the result really should not need much, should it. However, without knowing, but having studied his blog and site: Flash Renamer is likely to be updated for the next Windows as well! So what do you need it to be able to, that it can't already do?

It will not support Windows x64 for a fact.
I am running x64 - the workaround is to make use of context menu 'Send To" -> FlashRenamer.
Works well.

The left sidepanel (where one can define what rename actions should be taken) regretfully cannot be resized.

So, if you have a long regex then this is a bit 'so-so'. Also if you have done a number of renames, one can select a previous rename  using the drop down menu. However, if they are all 'long renames' and are starting the same way, then it is difficult to see which one you actually need.  It would be better to have that panel at the bottom, but for sure that won't happen.

These are the only minor thing I can think of.

As nowadays many such tools are for 'free',  users got accustomed to it and do not wish to pay anymore.
Tools like these require quite some development, testing and support and such a fee is really peanuts considering the time spent on it. Personally I have no problem paying for software.

p.s. sometimes renamers have a limit on files to be renamed...
Flash Renamer can handle quite a lot of pages, I mean a lot, 10, 20, 30,000...
