AK Sophisticated Rename 3.07
An out of the common program for file batch renaming
Sophisticated Rename is a helpful program that will simplify the renaming of various types of files, including photos and music.
AK Sophisticated Rename allows you to create an unlimited number of presets containing dozens of settings. Each preset can be quickly loaded by clicking on a corresponding shortcut.
The most prominent feature of the program is that it doesn't use predefined rules of renaming. The user specifies the rules for a certain renaming task with the help of visually adjustable data types.
For example, variables can extract a specific part of the original file names, counters can enumerate files both in numerical and alphabetical ways, conditionals allow you to apply different renaming patterns depending on the desired conditions.
A real breakthrough in the renaming software is the introduction of renaming plugins, which can be easily created in any programming language. The programmers from over the world have already created a few free useful plugins. For instance, RegExpSR implements regular expressions.
Sophisticated Rename will certainly spark the interest of photographers because it has internal Exif viewer and editor for jpeg and tiff files. The program can show and print a filtered set of any Exif tags for multiple files. The user can also set the date and time of files in accordance with Exif date and time.
The editor can handle either each file separately or all files at once. Music lovers should also be delighted as almost the same editor is implemented for MP3 ID3 v1/v2 tags. It's worth mentioning that the user is able to reduce any Exif or ID3 tag and easily insert it to the renaming template.
As far as file safety is concerned, Sophisticated Rename offers a real-time preview for any change in the renaming template. Moreover, it is possible to restore old file names even after the renaming process. The program also keeps the log of all operations, so it's easy to check the old file names of previous renaming processes.
Here are some key features of "AK Sophisticated Rename":
?пїЅ In contrast to programming languages, all data types are defined visually and added to the template with just one click
?пїЅ All your preferences can be saved to a preset to be used later with other files
?пїЅ The program allows you to sort out files to different folders automatically. The distinguishing feature can be either in the filename/extension or in the content of the file
?пїЅ SR can also change attributes, dates and times of files (it can be done in compliance with EXIF as well); you can choose one of five available case types for any item in the template or for the whole name
?пїЅ Internal EXIF and ID3v1/v2 editors are included. You can edit the data for all files at once or for each file separately
?пїЅ Works with regular expressions (additional plugin)
?пїЅ Only this program allows you to fulfill all your ideas concerned with batch processing. If you happen to find that SR is short of some features, you can write a plugin for it in any programming language. It will take just a couple of minutes, and it will be certainly faster than to rename a thousand files manually
