WildRename is a multi-file renaming application for Microsoft Windows users.
Its very simple user interface helps you build and perform many file renaming operations one-by-one or in batches.
In brief, WildRename helps you:

  • convert filenames to lower/upper case or normalize case (Capitalize First Letter)
  • add or remove strings of characters from filenames
  • replace strings of characters in filenames, using either simple replacements or powerful regular expressions
  • add text counters to a series of files (e.g. 0001_filename.ext)

I've been using this product for years and I love it. For me, It's not one of those tools I use every day or even every month but when I need it I'm glad I have it. For example when I take a bunch of photos and I have a folder of 20 or 30 pictures all named DSCN12xx; I take out this tool and rename them all quickly to 2010-12-25-MerryChristmas-xx. It can do much more complicated renaming than that though and offers a simulation mode so you can see the results prior to really changing your filenames.
