    anyone know how I can make it so I can automatically name photo's? I want to be able to take a folder say (car) and name each pic car01 car02 car03, ect. is there a way to do this without renaming each individual pic? I heard it can be done with automator but I can't figure it out

    go into automator>finder and then drag the action named "rename finder items"

    you'll have to figure out the nitty gritty

    ok did that but still couldn't figure it out, I tried it once and it made doubles of every pic I have and put them in sequencial order but if I want to select a certain folder and rename all the pics in it how do I do that?

    automator has renamed all of my photos without a problem :dunno:

    I think you guys are adding/removing extra steps that aren't required.

    Get Finder Items / Rename Finder Items
