FreshBatch: Rename Files In Bulk On Mac

If you've ever imported a couple hundred photos from your camera, you know the most common file names a camera uses are essentially meaningless. If you want a quick and easy way to find and replace specific parts of a file name, FreshBatch is a lightweight tool that does just that.

FreshBatch works essentially like a find and replace option, where it only replaces the keyword you list, but retains everything else. It's great for quickly renaming a bunch of files you've just imported or downloaded. It doesn't have a lot of options, but that's part of the appeal. It's simple, lightweight and makes bulk file changes a painless process. It's also able to swap extensions, which is handy if your camera has the tendency to upload in all caps. FreshBatch is a free download from the developers site below.

    Nice... After moving from Windows to Mac a couple years ago and realising how feature-poor and inflexible the apple Finder is compared to Explorer on Win, I purchased and have been using ABFR (A Better Finder Renamer) http://www.publicspace.net/ABetterFinderRename/ which works fantastic and is highly flexible... but overkill if I just want to quickly rename a folder of a few 100 files from AAA to BBB. This app is joining the tool-box - Thanks :)

    There is another one like ABFR which is called NameMangler. Ive used this for about 4 years and it hasn't skipped a beat. Quite a bit cheaper too at $10.

    What's wrong with using Automator (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automator_%28software%29) which comes built in?
