A variety of options including changing filename case, adding an auto-incrementing number, replacing specific text inside names, adding a portion or the entire date or time, deleting text at specific starting positions, and much more. A "Preview" button lets you see how the rename will occur without actually performing the operation, allowing you to make changes as necessary.
