Ant Renamer is a lightweight Windows application whose purpose is to help you rename multiple files and folders with the aid of various user-defined settings.
It is important to mention that the tool offers support for Unicode encoding operations, so you can rename files that have characters in Greek, Japanese, Chinese, or other languages.
Clean feature lineup
The program sports a clean and intuitive interface that enables you to carry out most operations with minimal effort.
Ant Renamer gives you the possibility to add files and folders to the list using the built-in browse button or “drag and drop” operations.
A wide range of renaming options
You can choose between different renaming options that are related to the following operations: extension adjustment, string replacement, multiple string replacement, string insertion, character deletion, enumeration, MP3 tag and Exif info insertion, date and time stamps, regular expression, and other.
Other notable characteristics bundled in this program enable you to preview the selected files, activate the batch mode for executing multiple renaming tasks for the selected items and directories, and log the entire process to a file.
Last but not least, you are allowed to remove the selected items, undo your actions, delete dead files from the list, and export the log to TXT or LOG file format or copy it to the clipboard for pasting it into other third-party utilities.
