Could anyone explain to me how to do it? I imported a ton of pictures from my camera and they all have no name besides numbers from the camera, is there a way to change that?

There are a couple of ways I know to do this .... but I'll concentrate on the inbuilt iPhoto way ... hang on ... you haven't mentioned if you use iPhoto. EDITED TO ADD ... oooops, yes you did, I didn't see it in the title.

There's are pre-written AppleScripts to handle this:



To enable easy access to these and more pre-written scripts you need to read this:

enable the AppleScript menu

⌘⌘⌘⌘⌘⌘⌘⌘⌘⌘


iPhoto '06 does it this way:

Go to iPhoto Menubar ~> Photos ~> Batch Change and select text in the second drop-down menu so it reads "Set Title To Text". Then check the box "Append a number to each photo"



⌘⌘⌘⌘⌘⌘⌘⌘⌘⌘

Finally, Automator does this well but be sure to follow all the instructions here:

If you want to rename each photo after the event name plus a number
eg Myday1 myday2 and so on Click on the event select all .Then do a batch change via the pictures menu (I think I'm at work at the moment)
You then get a drop down where you are asked what kind of batch change you want click ok
and Robert is your farthers Brother ...so to speak

Now with Leopard
