The Media File Renamer is a WordPress plugin that renames media files nicely for a cleaner system and for a better SEO.
It automatically renames your media filenames depending on their titles. When files are renamed, the references to it are also updated (posts, pages, custom types and their metadata). There is also a little dashboard called File Renamer in Media that will help you rename all your files at once. Advanced users can change the way the files are renamed by using the plugin's filter (check the FAQ).
The Pro users are given a few more features like manual renaming and advanced logs (SQL queries). A good way to use the plugin is to actually let it do the renaming automatically (like in the free version) and to do it manually for a few files for fine tuning.
BE CAREFUL. File renaming is a dangerous process. Before renaming everything automatically, try to rename a few files first and check if all the references to this file are still alright on your website. Depending on your plugins, theme or specific settings, the plugin might not find all the references. I strongly advise you to backup your database and your uploaded files first. If references aren't updated properly, please contact me with details about it. I will try my best to cover more and more special cases.
NOTE. This plugin will not allow you to change the filename directly. You need to change the title of the media in the standard WordPress Media Library. This plugin will then change the filename be the same as the new title. If you want to rename the filename directly, you will need to upgrade to the Pro version (http://apps.meow.fr/media-file-renamer/).
