Batch Rename items in a folder...
Here's my dilemma... Periodically, I get my film processed onto a PhotoCD. I want to copy those pictures into my Pictures folder so that OS X can use them for a screen saver slide show. Unfortunately, the pictures are always given the same name. So, right now I have to manually change the name of every picture in the folder before copying them, or else it will overwrite the last batch of pictures.

Is there a program that will let me automate renaming of every file in a folder? For example, I'd like to append the date of processing to each picture.

I used to use Chaotic Software's DropRename and DropAttribute in the olden days to do batch file changes. It looks like they may have merged them into one program called Manipulator ( Not sure if it runs in Classic as DropRename doesn't seem to work correctly anymore.
