Whether you are working with music files you have ripped or otherwise acquired, organizing your digital photo collection, or almost any other type of file, the problem of having to rename large numbers of files is one that we all face from time to time.
Rather than manually renaming your photos so they are more easily identifiable, or renaming individual music tracks one by one, you can turn to FiRE – the File Renaming Engine – to do the hard work for you.
When you have taken the time to take photographs, it seems a shame to keep them to yourself and leave the images stagnating on your hard drive. Just as regular photos are best framed and hung on the wall, so digital images should be shared with others as well.

One of the great things about the Windows platform is the vast range of free software available for the OS, enabling you to do just about anything with a PC at no cost.
