A Better Finder Rename 8 public beta released

updated 04:25 pm EDT, Mon August 4, 2008

Rename 8 public beta has announced the first public beta of its upcoming software, A Better Finder Rename 8. The program allows users to easily rename large numbers of files; users are able to drag files straight from Finder, or else use the Finder context menu hotkey to begin the renaming process. People are also provided with an instant preview that eliminates guesswork, and shows the exact format in which the file will be renamed with current settings.

Better Finder additionally features the ability to extract EXIF data from photos, and then use that information to sort and name files by shooting time and date. ID3 tags in music files can likewise be read, allowing users to create their own naming scheme for a music collection.

Version 8 sports a completely reworked, single-window user interface, which aims to streamline functions. Another feature is a multi-threaded renaming engine, which solves issues like naming conflicts through a range of configurable parameters.

The beta is available now as a free trial, with a full license costing $25.
