about Ant Renamer and ReNamer Mar 2015

This is pretty close to ReNamer (my favourite) but not quite. The interface can be a bit confusing and is not as intuitive as that of the former mentioned. But other than usability this does offer pretty much all you probably ever need when it comes to renaming files. It's also free, which helps if you're a commercial user.

Also works well on Linux through WINE.

It has the feature [Move UP/Down], found only in Quick File Rename (paid).
