It's great except it does not support regular expression (regex) that contains lookbehind.

Why bother with an inflated 25 MB "advanced" tool with muddy licensing terms
while 485 KB slim Pintosoft's FocusOn Renamer v1.3 (Free for everyone - personal and commercial use) will perform just as well ?

Website down, if it doesn't come back online I can provide downloads for all Inviska Rename versions I have.

smaragdus on 2018-05-02 17:19

Website still down, linking to Softpedia.
Download via pCloud.

Similarities with Lupas Rename are obvious. And this is good. But the website has been down for too long. And that's bad.

@shnbwmn,
I tried every version past 5.60 to see if upgrading was warranted. None were, so I found desktop version 5.60 and I'm staying with that.

shnbwmn on 2016-12-08 20:41

Thanks.

@shnbwmn There have been a TON of changes that you can check out in the Softpedia changelog, but I don't know if there's any crucial updates that you're missing out on with the old version. The program was one of my favorites before the change, but since there I've mostly switched to Ant Renamer.

GREAT for renaming using regular expression (regex) that contains lookbehind. It also accepts the plus symbol (+) inside lookbehind. Other renamers does not support any of these, not even Advanced Renamer and Bulk Rename Utility.

It can apply multiple regex parameter separately for the same batch.

Issues are there are no way to apply regex only to file name and not to the extension. It also needs admin privilege to run.

My mistake, it does not need admin privilege to run.

Rename Master is a utility for renaming large groups of files with a few clicks. It is suitable for anyone working with websites, file archives, or collections of music, videos and pictures. This utility will add, remove, or replace parts of the filename.

Supports renaming via file properties, MP3 tags, JPEG JFIF and EXIF tags. For example, you can rename a photo based on when it was taken or MP3 based on when it was recorded.

error. I meant undo feature of Rename Master, not Advanced Renamer, although Advanced Renamer also has an undo feature, but in GUI only.

MIKLO on 2017-01-13 14:02

I tried this program and it does work fine but for me I much prefer Advanced Renamer,although they are similar everyone has a preference.
