How to rename multiple images on Mac

Allie Hawkins

Ever have a bunch of files you want to rename? Maybe you received a group of documents from your Windows-using friend that have some wonky text in them, or maybe you want to serialize and date some pictures? PhotoBulk, a simple batch image editor for Mac, makes this so easy you'll scratch your head twice; once for not having done this with PhotoBulk in the past, and a second time if you've never used it before because you'll see how easy and powerful it is.

Here’s what you have to do to rename multiple images in no time:

  1. Download PhotoBulk here or in the Mac App Store and launch it.
  2. Сhoose the pictures you want to edit and drop them in PhotoBulk window. There you will see how many files were added.
  3. PhotoBulk interface
  4. Click the Rename button in the bottom left of the PhotoBulk window.
  5. Here you can choose between prefix and suffix positions of digits, the amount of zeros, start number and set the name of your choice.
  6. Rename Photos on Mac
  7. When you set up all preferred settings and are ready to apply them, click START button.
  8. In the window that appears choose the path and format to save processed photos.
  9. Press Save button.

After processing you can save your renaming settings to presets for future usage.

Using PhotoBulk you can forget about unrecognizable camera names, and rename images by giving a new filename and number sequences. And don’t worry: original photos will remain untouched.

PhotoBulk will also help you resize multiple images and optimize photos and add watermark and even convert them with ease.
