I'm looking for a software which can remove some parts of file names:
Assuming a Windows OS, I like Ken Rename for this purpose.
This bat file will do the trick;
for %%i in (very_long_*.jpg) do (set fname=%%i) & call :rename goto :eof :rename rename %fname% %fname:~10%
where "10" is the length of the prefix you wish to remove. (In this case, "very_long_"). Tested on windows 7.
Try ReNamer, which is my favorite renaming freeware.
ReNamer is a small, yet very flexible file and folder renamer, that offers all the standard renaming procedures, including prefixes, suffixes, replacements, case changes as well as advanced options and support for Unicode file names. In addition, it can also remove brackets, add number sequences, remove digits or symbols and change file extensions. The program allows you to combine multiple renaming actions as a rule set, applying each action in logical sequence. Renamer supports 60 different meta fields, including EXIF, ID3 and others, that can be used as part of the new file name. Advanced users can use PascalScript to program their own renaming rules.
My favorite is Lupas Rename, which in my view is the swiss-knife of renamers:
Another option that I've been using on Windows for quite a while is Rename Master.
From the site:
This utility will add, remove, or replace parts of the filename with ease and also supports renaming via file properties, MP3 tags, JPEG JFIF and EXIF tags, and text files. Batch renaming that's simple to use, yet still very powerful.
- Intelligent number sorting
- JPEG/MP3 tag support and many more Meta-Variables
- Auto-Preview support
- "Scipts" to save commonly used renaming options
- [*] and [?] command prompt style wildcards for replacing and remove options
- "Undo" button so a renaming operation can be rolled back
- Floating thumbnail window for viewing pictures and optional thumbnail file list view
- Optional Explorer integration for right-clicking on folders or using "Send To"
Best of all, there's no install file, so it's portable for Windows systems.
