Gillmeister Rename Expert Key features
Icon rename files folders
Simultaneously rename folders along with subfolders and files

Filter and sort functions
The extensive filter and sort functions can also be used for metadata, allowing the inclusion and exclusion of files and folders.

Icon move files
Move and rename files in one step
In addition to renaming, files can also be moved or copyied into subfolders whose naming is based on metadata (e.g., picture taken date, creation date, etc.).
Icon special functions
Many special functions
Rename Expert offers a variety of specialized functions, such as adding the checksum (MD5, SHA, CRC32) of the file contents to the file name, the encryption of folder and file names, or the possibility of adding random characters to file names as well as to rename files completely random.
Icon preview new file names
Real-time preview of the new file names
All changes are shown in real-time and are checked for errors (e.g., duplicate name) to avoid possible conflicts.

Rename files using numerous metadata
Metadata (EXIF, IPTC, ID3, etc.) can be used for the naming of files (e.g., for images and audio files).

Icon rename file extensions
Rename file extensions
With Rename Expert, file extensions can be arbitrarily changed (e.g., jpeg to jpg). They can be added or removed, and their case is individually customizable.
Icon path too long
Shorten long file names / Edit file paths with more than 260 characters
With Rename Expert you can rename files or folders that exceed a path length of 260 characters, and therefore can no longer be edited using Windows Explorer.

Action lists allow a combination of any different number of actions and can be saved as profile for future reuse.
