The Media Rename plugin allows you to easily rename (and retitle) your media files, once uploaded.
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.
I don't know why I havent look for this earlier. it is so handy!
After several other plugins tested... this one worked as aspected!
Bulk rename made it much faster than doing 1 image at a time.
This is going to save me 100s of hours of work for clients. Thank you, thank you, thank you. (=
The title says it.
Changes the filenames of thumbnail versions automatically. I love that.
very useful and efficient.
all images are updated throughout the site including any in the ACF fields or custom post types. Thanks!
This nice tool reqs a high resolution screen, on my 1280x800 laptop doesn't display all the columns properly. There is no horizonal scroll bar on the bottom of the page. The plugin also not always alert the user if the new filename is not valid (ex. includes spaces) or when same identical new names entered for multiple selected image files.
