Cherry on top!

A must-have add-on the Meow set of tools. There’s enough work as it is, now you can put file renaming on autopilot. More time for drinking beer too.

Seriously impressive tool

Like everything this developer does, nothing here has been left to chance. Providing the user takes necessary precautions and the trouble to understand what he is doing (indispensable with any powerful tool), this plugin can be used to tidy up image file names consistently and reliably, a task that is notoriously difficult to achieve.

Makes a tedious task a breeze

The best I’ve used so far to rename files with more descriptive names. The free version does a great job even if it’s limited to using the media title.

Saving me so much time!

I was having headache of having bad names on the file names that uploaded in my websites, and this was keep me frustrated because I need to rename every single time. But, with this problem, I found that this plugin saving me so much time because I don’t need to care the filename anymore, I can just upload my images and media file renamed will do its job! It is just as simple like that!
