10.6: Rename screenshots with Automator and AppleScript
Authored by: tangawk on Jan 24, '10 12:51:01AM

It's been a while since I posted this hint and just got back to it.

Glad to see it's generated some interest - especially from some hardcore scripters.

To explain why I wanted it to work this way: Whenever I'm about to go somewhere, I tend to grab several (maybe up to 10) screenshots relating to something. Perhaps maps of a particular route (no, I don't have an iPhone) or opening times and location maps of Eurodisney etc. So I end up with multiple grabs of essentially the same topic. I then want to rename all of these as a batch (eg. Eurodisney 1 - Eurodisney 10). I then dump these onto a Symbian phone via Bluetooth.

For the times where I"m grabbing images of a different subject, sure, the rename as you grab would be great. But most of the time, I find myself wanting to rename batches of files of a similar subject.
