For your ease, we have found and reviewed some best free, easy to use Windows 8 photo renamer apps, that you can simply refer to.

Image Renamer

Image Renamer is a simple and easy to use Windows 8 photo renamer app that supports both single as well as batch photo renaming. The app works in an easy way and anyone can use it without any difficulty. After installing and launching the app, all you have to do is choose the folder that has the photos you want to rename. After this, the app loads all the photos within the folder and shows them as thumbnails on its interface. You can either choose photos one by one to rename the selected ones, or simply choose the “Rename All” option to rename all the listed photos in one go.

The app supports almost all common photo file formats for renaming. As for the renaming pattern, you can specify a common title (like “Harrys Birthday” or something else) after which Image Renamer appends a number automatically.

PhotoQuickRenamer is another free, yet powerful Windows 8 Photo Renamer app that rename photos using their EXIF data. This app also allows individual, as well as batch file renaming. You just have to choose a target folder and specify the EXIF elements (like a fixed string, photo title, date and time information, camera model, etc.) you want to use in renaming. This will load the images as tiny thumbnails and displays a preview of their new names on selection, before you actually apply Renaming on the photos. Selection can be made either by clicking individually on the photos, or by using the “All Select” option. Once you are done with choosing the renaming criteria, you can Execute Renaming and confirm your choice to save changes.

This free Windows 8 photo renamer app also supports all common image file formats as input. It replaces the original photos after renaming, or saves the output photos in a folder named as “Renamed” (in the target folder) if the “Save to Folder” option is selected.
