Advanced Renamer (ARen for short) is an advanced and free file/folder batch renamer developed by Kim Jensen from China. It comes with simple and friendly UI, which enables users to master the use of this tool in a relatively short period of time without any professional knowledge required. AppNee doesn’t have time to compare it with other bulk rename utilities, yet suggests you do it yourself.

Advanced Renamer has very sophisticated renaming abilities, and allows user to add his own solutions into its built-in renaming patterns list. These inbuilt renaming rules include: new name, new case, move, remove, remove pattern, renumber, replace, add, list, list replace, swap, trim, attributes, timestamp and script. You can choose to use at will according to needs. In particular, it’s also able to extract information directly from the file attributes or tags and use them in the new name, and lets you instantly preview the new file name before making a decision.

When it comes to the applications of Advanced Renamer, I only put two simple examples as follows: Digital camera always automatically generates regular yet meaningless file name with alphanumeric string (letters + numbers). At this point, Advanced Renamer can easily rename all these photos in batch; Use Advanced Renamer to tidy up, classify music or image files (automatically move or copy songs sung by the same singer to a specified folder, or classify photographs into different folders categorized by date).
