SubRosaSoft FileName Extreme allows you to change the names of files within a folder much more quickly than renaming them manually.
There are many transformations available, from adding a prefix or suffix, to cleaning a file name for posting online, to renumbering and batch labeling.
You can filter out certain file types, or you can select individual files within your preview.
And FileName Extreme lets you see a preview of what your new file names will be before actually renaming them, giving you the option to refine your choices.
OS X Sierra supported!
