    Transfering Photos to memory card
    I received a digital photo frame for X-mas that is not Mac Compatible. I am using a work around that requires loading my iphoto to a photo memory card. The problem is that my photos have duplicate names. It looks like when I have uploaded the photos from my SLR, the photos start at the same number causing the duplication. Is that correct?

    So two questions: Is there a way to rename what I already have in memory that would not require a picture by picture effort? How to I upload photos in the future to keep this problem from happening?

    Thanks.

    You can use something like name mangler to bulk rename files. Or you could just try an export to a folder from iphoto, I've a feeling it renames any duplicates.

    To stop this happening in the future you can change the options in your camera to use continuous numbering
