Sometimes I want to immediately rename a picture or video I just took, to remember what it was. I don't want to open a file manager, it takes too long, so here is how it should work:

  1. I have the file on the screen (any app that has a Share button)
  2. I press "Share"
  3. I press "Rename file"
  4. A popup appear, I edit the filename, press OK.
  5. The file is renamed and the popup disappears

Send to rename intent


  • Fast to use
  • Must work offline
  • Free (ads OK), ideally open source

You can use Gallery Rename Plugin to rename an image directly from share menu. After installation, this option is added to the menu:

By clicking it, a renaming dialog is shown: (with some extra options)

Another solution (albeit with extra clicks) is by using QuickPic.

When you take a picture/video (or download one) and open QuickPic instantly after, it shows a pop-up like this:

Tapping it takes you straight to the recently captured picture.

There, in the overflow of the image, you can find the "rename" option:
