Knamer program is a simple little utility for batch renaming files.

At first, I wrote Knamer to meet my own needs, which were mostly renaming photographs and TV episodes. Later it expanded to include more and more features that hopefully others will find useful. Believe it or not, I had Knamer half written before I even discovered Krename. Had I found it earlier, I probably wouldn't have bothered.

Most information you could want is included in the README. I also included a directory of test files for you to play around with if you'd rather not mess with your own files at first.

In my experience, Knamer has proved quite stable, usually only encountering problems on files with tricky characters in the name. If things should prove otherwise on your system, please let me know. If a particular filename (old or new) is causing trouble, please email me the exact details and I'll see if I can get it fixed.


Knamer usage is slightly different than that of most other renaming applications, so it might be worth your while to read through the Help tab before trying to use the program. It outlines the basic operation of Knamer and also gives an extensive set of examples. Additionally, almost every button or setting has "What's this?" information that can be accessed using the question mark button on the toolbar or by pressing Shift + F1.

Supersweet disappearing progressbar
Improved handling of single quotes
