powerful batch renamer for KDE
  20 reviews

KRename is a very powerful batch file renamer for KDE which can rename a list of files based on a set of expressions. It can copy/move the files to another directory or simply rename the input files.

Definitely the best of the Linux renamers. But the most powerful features are almost completely undocumented: Would love to see a reference to using regex's in Find & Replace. The Template tool is actually excellent for reaaranging filenames (what I wanted) but has never been mentioned in polite company! In truth, the best renamer of all time is the Ant Renamer, which has only been compiled for Windows. The interface & features are absolutely spot on & simple to use. And documented. The code is OS & GPL, just waiting for a good hacker to compile for Lin & QT. . .

It's a great tool, A little different than the Batch Rename Tool for Windows. But in just a couple of minutes of clicking around, you'll become a pro.

this is such a perfect piece!!
I was so looking for a renamer with which I could batch rename files like "file_name-XX-rest.extenstion" .. to "filename-xx-YY-rest.extenstion"

I tried GPRename, and pyRenamer, even installed Thunar for its bulk renamer, and although some of these could actually do the job (did I have the patience), krename just did it… in no time, for which I was very grateful
BTW, it works on non-KDE desktops, too (works perfectly on Cinnamon, for example)

Simple but useful. Does what it says. So far I've only used it to change file extensions in large batches, but it does that quickly and effectively. Also has an UNDO function in case you make a cock-up!

Hervorragend, ich benutze es zum umbenennen meiner Digitalfotos, dabei ist der Zugriff auf die Bilddaten sehr hilfreich.

severely outdated; example of what turns off Windows and OSX converts.

Very simple and powerful tool to rename a lot of videos at once to keep your data organised.

Pretty good. Not the best renamer I've ever used for simplicity however. Lots of functions make it easy to learn straight up though.
