Advanced Renamer

Command line automation

In this version of Advanced Renamer a special command line executable has been included. This executable (arenc.exe) can execute a batch represented by a batch method file and a list of files and folders to perform the bacth on, without requiring any user interaction. This way of performing batches is meant for users with special needs and a high degree of computer experience.
The command line tool can be used as a scheduled job in a server environment or as part of another batch job.

New tags: Video tags

With the new video tags you can add video information to the file name. A large variety of formats and codecs are supported, including DivX, XviD, WMV, MKV, OGM, and many more.

With the new tags you can work with these video and audio information: Width, Height, FrameRate, Duration, Codec, and Bitrate

More image tags

There has been a need for more EXIF tags when renaming image files.

The new tags are: Camera make and model, Subject, Title, Aperture, Brightness, Focal length, ISO, Shutter speed, Exposure time and mode, Contrast, Saturation, Sharpness, and White balance

GPS location tags

Many modern digital cameras and smart phone cameras can record GPS coordinates inside the pictures they take. In this version new latitude and longitude tags can be appended to the file names.
But numeric coordinates is not very informative. Three new tags can be used to add the city, country, and state to the file names. When these tags are used, the coordinates are used to lookup the names of the closest cities in an online database.

New method: Trim

This is probably the simplest of all the methods. This new method will remove characters present in the text box from the beginning and the end of file name. Other methods can already handle this job but this methods makes it easier and faster to do.

New method: Renumber

This clever method can detect existing numbers in file name and replace them with new number sequences or adjust the existing numbers. The method can be used to adjust a sequence of unordered numbered names e.g. 003.txt, 004.txt, 006.txt can be changed to 001.txt, 002.txt, 004.txt. This task was previously an impossible one with Advanced Renamer.
