    Does anyone...
    Know why automator won't rename my pictures? I follow all the correct procedures and things but still get this error Finder got an error: Can't get properties of alias "StuartDavisesktop:sfsdfdsfsdf.bmp". (-1728)

    Anybody know what that means?

    i had this same problem, it turns out that if you have FileVault turned on it doesn't give automator the proper permission to change files...if you turn filevault off, it will work fine.

    That's what I was thinking actually...I figured there was some sort of file permission issues. I got fed up and went through all 1800 pictures...and i ended up deleting 1400 dupes and renaming the rest by hand. Oh well...I'll know better for next time. Thanks!
