NameChanger Will Batch Rename Files for Free in Mac OS
NameChanger is a free app solution to quickly and easily batch rename files in Mac OS X. Using it is very easy, and it has all the features you’d expect in a batch renaming app. You can replace occurrences of text in filenames, use wildcards, append text or characters, add dates, make files sequential, and even remove characters, just select your options and you’ll see a live preview as to what the new names will be. When you’re satisfied, click “Rename” and away you go, the files are renamed quickly.
It’s fast, free, and incredibly easy to use, which makes it my preferred choice for renaming a ton of files in Mac OS. If you’re happy with NameChanger, throw the developer a couple bucks, it’s donationware.
And yes, we did a prior post on software to complete a similar task of renaming files in OS X, but after we linked to it the developer decided to turn the once donationware software into a paid app solution. It’s still a great app, but since we wanted to offer a free solution, we figured it would be worth while to mention NameChanger too, which, as of now, remains free, and is highly functional.
