Very simple to use - like it - but may need tweaks for some
By , for WP 4.2.3

I wanted a facility to rename titles and filenames (GUIDs) by filtering through Media Library. I use a plugin called Media Search to search by which page the image is attached.

This plugin by default renames your titles to make them 'look nice' (ie remove underscores and spaces), but if you wanted to have the titles unaltered you can simply change one of the lines in the php file. See Support post 'Unable to rename exactly the way I want it'.

Also, you can change the underlying filenames by referring to the post, 'GUID not updated'. But strongly suggest that your original image filenames are unique throughout your website.

I tend to use Total Commander to rename files before uploading.

Doesn't change the file name internally
By , for WP 4.2.2

It does change the file name in the dashboard, etc..but it doesn't change the file name internally. For example, although it shows the name has been changed in the media..if someone shares or pins a post, the original file name still shows up.

So useful!!

Bulk rename made it much faster than doing 1 image at a time.

It works!!!!!!!
