PhotoRenamer is a lightweight software application whose purpose is to help you rename multiple photos at the same time. It comes in handy in case you possess a large picture collection with messed-up filenames, as you may use masks for altering the names of the images.
The layout may look a bit overwhelming at a first glance but this is only because the utility packs lots of configuration parameters in the main window.
There’s support for a preview panel where you can visualize the images with the aid of thumbnails. You may hide the image preview from the GUI and change the looks of the utility by applying several background photos or colorful themes.
A log window keeps information about all your actions and possible errors and can be hidden from your view if it takes too much space in the working environment.
An Explorer-like panel lets you browse throughout the content of the folders stored in your computer. Files can be filtered by file extension. In addition, the tool reveals details about each picture, such as current and modified filename, file date and time, EXIF date and time, as well as comments.
Photo renaming options
PhotoRenamer lets you rename all files or only the selected ones, copy the selected image to the clipboard, and use EXIF data during the renaming process.
You can create masks for renaming pictures based on custom strings that may contain user-defined specifications (e.g. day, month, year, hour, photo number). Plus, you can change the file extension data to lowercase or uppercase, as well as preview the filenames.
Duplicate and image metadata options
You can handle duplicate files by adding a suffix, assign a color to the duplicate items, and rename files in the source directory.
You are allowed to change the image attributes (filename, creation, modification and last access time), EXIF data (height, width, horizontal and vertical resolution, pixel format), as well as IPTC info. Additionally, you can rotate the photos to different angles.
All in all, PhotoRenamer delivers a straightforward approach for renaming images by applying masks. On the downside, it needs extra time in order to start up and not all of its configuration settings are highly intuitive. There’s no support for an undo feature so you cannot roll back the changes.
