Renamer is very useful and has a nice simple interface.
The developer is very helpful and responsive.
He answered my email and helped me out the same day.
Would definitely recommend.

Renamer is my go to for cleaning up file names and now that it saves and can transfer sets it only just gets better.

If only this also worked on my Snow Leopard installation!

How is this feature tied to 64bit OSes?

Hi there!

Thanks for your feedback. Glad to hear you like the app!

The reason we can only support OS X 10.7.3 Lion and newer is because Apple's Sandbox file authentication for Mac App Store apps requires said version. In order to keep both our direct and the Mac App Store versions as consistent as possible, we had to disable support for Snow Leopard.

You can, however, copy your preferences (com.creativebe.Renamer.plist) file between machines for older versions of Renamer and with it your presets. You can find this file in the following path:
/Library/Preferences/com.creativebe.Renamer.plist

Hope this clears things up!

Sorry, to follow up on my previous post, the path I mentioned should be as follows:
(Home Folder)/Library/Preferences/com.creativebe.Renamer.plist

Hope this helps!

The best interface (not perfect, see below) and, for some reason, the icon is really well designed.

By the way, I always thought Renamer was not that powerful but it supports Regular Expressions and once you play with them you will probably get the result you want.

The site mention Regular Expression but this feature is not that obvious. It’s hidden in the Find & Replace.

In addition, and here the interface could be better, the Find text box field is too short for some Regular Expressions you need. I wish there was a way to resize the right panel too.

I like this! I've been using A Better Finder Rename for years, but Renamer has a feature ABFR is missing: Undo. Also, it's easier on the eyes. Still not sure about giving up status bar space though--ABFR uses the contextual menu, er, services approach to things, allowing easy setup of key commands.

This is NOT a "get rich quick" project I assume. Who in their right mind would pay that price for something that you can get for free from so many different sources.
This application will have to do something SO spectacular that it borders on the miraculous before I would buy it. Sorry.... NO SALE!!!

Great app, nice features also, but $20 bucks for a batch file re-namer is a bit overpriced, I feel in need to politely suggest to use the (free!) NameChanger from MRR Software instead (or some other alternative).

Gotta love it when developers of a highly rated application decide to make 'improvements' that alienate it's user base and go against what made it a good application in the first place. Then decide to charge $20 for it. I would have gladly paid a reasonable fee for the OLD application design if the developers felt it was needed.

When I updated to v4.1.1, the app has no icon?

I've used the same Automator service which took me about thirty seconds to create to rename files for years now.

I have used an older version of Renamer4Mac since 2006, and this new version changed the interface, not for the better, and it does not remember the last way I was using it when I reopen it. So I am not at all preferring it over the older version. The older version was free, and if I could guess this change was partly a justification to charge money. I would say that if the other needed to charge money then he should have just said so, which I would support, because it was such a great program. If this current version had the option to use the old layout, I would use that all the time.
