flexible file renaming tool PFrank (Peter`s Flexible RenAmiNg Kit) is flexible file renaming tool that enables you to rename your files using simple or complex renaming schemes. You can add incrementing number counters, prefixes, postfixes and more. The program supports meta data for audio, image, video, email, office, and markup-language files, and can extract the information to be used in the new file name. PFrank includes a set of pre-defined renaming commands that can simply be selected from a drop menu, and the results can be previewed before any changes are made to the actual files. Advanced users can build any renaming sequence they like using pre-defined or custom commands in combination with regular expressions. PFrank is very flexible when it comes to custom renaming options, but it also requires some dedicated involvement with the configuration and documentation. Copyright

Powerful metaphor, extreme learning curve 2 stars by xor_42 Jun 13, 2010 (Read all my 2 reviews)
More suited for advanced bit diddlers familiar with the arcane, albeit powerful, regex syntax. Very unintuitive GUI with cryptic fields. Help system, though easily invoked, is limited to minimal non-contextual descriptions. Requires diligent research into how program operates to make sense and effective use of it. That, by definition, makes it ineffectual for routine tasks. show Review details

Flexible, stable and outstanding features 5 stars by sledge Feb 09, 2007
The author is being very involved to enhance PFrank due to requests. Concerning a FREE program I've never seen a stronger engagement before! The renaming kit or "P. Featured, Remarkable, Automatable (file)Name (generation-)Kit" is most flexible even in complicated situations and - greatest thing - it's based on regular expressions (yes, my roots are in the unix world). A unique feature (AFAIK) is renaming file-tuples (some dslr's can store one raw- and a corresponding jpg-version of a picture) according to EXIF-data. If nothing else, I want to mention the very useful undo function if bulk renaming went wrong. Imho the frequent updates do make sense cause in most cases new features are introduced (not bug-fixes) and that pushes the utility forward to save you alot of work. So, Peter thanx for your great job and keep on going... :-> show Review details
