RENAME9: Simple File Rename Tool
HOWTO prefix filename with filedates and more

My problem

I was to rename a lot of images, prefixed with its exif datestamp. There is a very good tool which does the job, ExifTool, but I found it a little cumbersome to just rename the files. The result of my effort was this simple rename9 tool.

rename9.exe (Win32-Command-Line-Tool)


Example

rename9 -dp -dt=Exif -de -s *.jpg
Rename all images from IMG_1001.jpg to 120101-1200_IMG_1001.jpg
Perfect for sorting images from many sources
rename9 -i *.jpg
Shourtcut for the above
rename9 -s *.jpg
Rename "My Filename with .jpg" to My_Filename_with_AAO.jpg
rename9 S1=S2 *.jpg
Renames all strings "S1" in *.jpg files with "S2"
rename9 -install[="--images *.jpg"]
Install rename9 as context menu handler with default options "--images *.jpg"
