about Flash Renamer Jun 2011

Even it's commercial, you should have a look on it if you want to rename really fast and comfortable a lot of files. I really love the feature to add or remove strings by mark them inline. Also the "replace"-funktion is really useful. The interface is very nice designed, most other tools look very chaotic and it's hard to find the function you'll look for. I tried a lot of renamers, but this is the one, I like the most. Too bad, it's not open source :)

about Flash Renamer Jun 2011

It is the most powerful and intuitive of the lot. The UI is well organized by formats: General, Music, Numbers, Advanced, Presets. Each format has a different set of tabs, which makes the UI less cluttered. It also has "Visual Assist" to allow you to visually set the position and length of the Add or Remove functions.
