Peter's Flexible Renaming Kit v.2.23


PFrank is an acronym for Peter's Flexible RenAmiNg Kit. This is a Freeware Professional Grade bulk file/folder renaming program that runs under Windows. With this tool you can easily organize your music, picture, video, or any other types of files. PFrank comes equipped with many features, some of which you won't find on any other renaming program. The beauty of this tool is it's flexibility. You can easily build any renaming command sequence you like, preview all of the results, press the rename button, and you're done!No other renaming program has the flexibility of PFrank!With other renaming programs I used in the past, they always had to be run with multiple passes using different sets of renaming sequences until finally getting the required names. That was the motivation for writing PFrank. With PFrank you can set things up so that you get the exact names that you want in one pass! There are many exciting features in the latest versions including a new plugin for insertion of meta data from raw image files (e.g. cr2, nef, sr2), a much improved undo facility, new filters, new positioning controls, the ability for users to plug in their own renaming commands, and much more! Recently added a custom list manager for managing any number of custom lists!Many more improvements have been made in the last 2 years including the use of an original grouping feature, the selectability from dozens of pre-defined regular expressions (these can be used as templates for performing many renaming variations), the automatic display of columns depending on different criteria, a resizable thumbnail, a feature for custom building folder paths to newly renamed files (one of many features that were first available only on PFrank) , the ability to insert over 158 types of meta-data from music, image, video, email, markup-language, and other files. A sophisticated column manager was added to manage the potentially large number of columns that could be displayed in the preview window. Any of the meta-data can be saved to csv files!Features * Pre-Defined renaming commands for: o changing case, o inserting counters, o inserting parent folder names, o eliminating whitespace sequences. o inserting file properties, o inserting tag information and meta-data from Music files (e.g. MP3, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC), o inserting EXIF tag, IPTC tag, and meta-data from Image files (e.g. JPEG, TIFF, GIF, etc.), o inserting meta-data from Raw Image files (e.g. CRW, NEF, DNG, etc.) is supported via a plugin, o inserting tag information and meta-data from Video files (e.g. MPEG, AVI, etc.), o inserting tags from Markup Language files (e.g. HTML, SGML, etc.), o inserting meta-data from Email files (e.g. Mozilla EML), o inserting meta-data from Office type files (e.g. Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.), o inserting information from text files, o inserting hash codes, * Powerful Regular Expression (regex) based search/replace engine for defining custom replace commands. Regular expressions are a standard language. With PFrank there is no need to learn any custom or non-standard languages or syntax. With regular expressions it is trivial to add/delete/replace text or move/swap any parts of the filename. You create the expressions or choose from dozens of pre-defined regular expression sequences that you can modify as required. * Define any number of search/replace regular expressions and then run them in a custom sequence with one command!. * Include any of and as many of the pre-defined renaming commands in the custom sequence! * If the pre-defined commands and regular expression capability can't do what you want, then develop your own commands using the full power of the python programming language! See here for details. These commands, once plugged in, are treated like any of the built-in pre-defined commands. * Save custom sequences into a list. Any number of lists can be saved. A list manager is used to manage the lists. * Regular expression flags are available to ignore letter case, ignore file/folder name extensions, control the number of replacements made, and more! * With the Path Builder feature you can create a folder path from the current folder to a renamed file. eg. Convert the name '20061224abc.jpg' to '20061224Newabc.jpg * With the Grouping feature you can apply renaming criteria obtained from one file to to also rename files that are in the same group. e.g. insert meta-data from a .jpg file and insert it in the name for the .jpg and the corresponding .crw file * Highly customizable Music renaming. Eliminate extra whitespace, have consistent case (also define list of exceptions for words that are to have specific case), have consistent bracketing, consistent delimiters, consistent quoting, and more. With one command, all your MP3, Ogg Vorbis or FLAC file names can have the same naming format. * The performance is highly optimized for very large numbers of files/folders. * Preview changes before you make them. The Advanced scanner highlights any problems that would occur from the renaming including duplicate names, illegal characters, missing tags, and names that are too long. After previewing, you can edit or remove selected entries. * Manually edited names are highlighted. * The Previewer has many columns of information any of which can be enabled/disabled, resized, configured to be temporarily hidden, moved to different positions, or sorted. You can specify if you'd always like to see the rows sorted by the same column. Sorting can be in regular character-based order or in numeric based order (sometimes called natural sorting). Rows can also be moved up/down individually or in groups or can be arranged in random order. * The Previewer includes a built-in thumbnail viewer for image or text files. * If you've specified insertion of counters in the names, and you don't like the order that the names were numbered, you can use the row sorting or row rearranging features of the previewer to list the rows in the order that you want, and then reapply the numbering. * Drag file/folder names into the preview window. * Automatic resolution of duplicate names is optional. * Recursively processing the contents of subfolders is optional. * Variety of options available for filtering names before applying the renaming scanner. You can filter names by using: o Patterns (can also exclude names based on patterns), o Minimum length of name, o Maximum length of name, o Minimum length of pathname, o Maximum length of pathname. o Last Modified Dates. You can use patterns to include subfolders and their contents (can also exclude subfolders and their contents based on patterns) and can limit the level of subfolders processed. Regular expressions can be applied in the name filter pattern to specify any name combinations to include in the scans. Regular expressions can be applied in the name exclusion filter pattern to specify any name combinations to exclude in the scans. * Apply renaming to only files, only folders, or both files and folders. * Apply renaming to the entire name or just the prefix or extension. * Pre-Defined commands to change letter cases can be customized to specify a list of words that will always be forced to a certain case regardless of which type of letter case command is used. * Pre-Defined commands to insert counters are highly customizable. You can choose minimum and maximum lengths, start value for numbers, amount to increment numbers, padding of zeros, different number bases, and the use of random numbers. Number sequences can be restarted in each subfolder. The same counter values be used for names that have common prefixes but different extensions. * Pre-Defined commands to insert music, image, video, file properties, or other meta-data are highly customizable. * When inserting date information you can format the information using any combination of month, day, year, day of week, hour, minute, or second. You can also add offsets to any of the date/time fields. * Plus there are many more configurable options! * You can add text to the comment frames of MP3/EXIF tags. The text can include the original file name. * You can change file properties such as the last modification date, creation date, last accessed date, read/write attributes. * Unicode Support. * Regular Expression previewer. * Open files before renaming. Display picture files in a resizable thumbnail before renaming. * Rename Subversion (SVN) controlled files (only available at Tucows web site). * Undo your last change anytime (even after restarting) or configure ability to undo all renaming operations. * Use the built-in command line interface to invoke custom renaming from the Windows command line, batch files, the Windows task scheduler, etc. * Automatic saving of **All** current settings. * All settings can also be saved/loaded to an unlimited number of files. * Export the preview list (this can include over 158 types of meta data!) to a CSV file. * Copy many variations of data from the preview list to the clipboard. * Export the renaming or undo commands to a .bat file. * Export all renaming activity to a log file. * Import list of old/new filename pairs from a CSV file for renaming. Unicode files are supported. * Customize the colours used for any window. * Works in a networked environment. * Easily set up to run on portable devices like flash drives. * Optionally integrated with Explorer. Can activate PFrank by right-clicking on a Folder and selecting PFrank. * Includes comprehensive Help manual. Many detailed examples shown for using regular expressions and for using the options. * A Forums site is available for Questions & Answers and for users to exchange ideas. * Includes tooltips for all features. * Includes keyboard navigation and many shortcut keys. * Uninstalls cleanly (Hopefully you won't want to!).
