I have been using a free shareware file renaming program called..."File Renamer" for long time. I use it to change IMGP to the shooting date as part of my photo file name. I manually add a short description, as well.

Under Windows Vista/7, there was a bug in the start up screens, which required some extra clicking on a few OK boxes, one of which never went away as it should have.

So just a few minutes ago, I googled up a new renamer, which is called "Flexible Renamer 8.1".

After 2 minutes of playing around, I said Yipee!

Some people in the past had asked about how to rename files using the folder name, etc, and this program appears to be able to do a multitude of things.

I downloaded it from snapfiles, but here's the direct URL.

It shows a preview of the renamed file, so you can play around a bit until you get it right, then hit the button. And for big goofs, there's "undo". Also multi-language, as well.
