An AppleScript to copy iPhoto Description to Name
Authored by: imcquill on Aug 25, '07 09:14:10AM

that text file was kind of funky. Replace the A^ on the fifth line with the
symbol which you can copy and paste in. Then it compiles.

This would be easier if iPhoto had just built it in. There is even a 'batch change' option in the menus, but copying the description to the name isn't an option.

By the way, the way the applescript is set up, if the description is empty, the name would become empty after running the script. This does not change the filename of the picture at all, just the metadata. This is good, because you probably do not want the filename displayed for the name on the webpage.
