This is an applescript. It asks you for a name basis, and then gives all the images you select in iPhoto that name, followed by an underscore and a number in ascending order, i.e. "nyears2003_1", "nyears2003_2", "nyears2003_3", etc." You can specify the starting index number; the default number is 1.
What's new in this version:
- ability to specify initial number
- deselect images after renaming -- this prompts iPhoto to update the displayed title of the last image renamed.
- this is a stopgap release, I'd like to add more features, but it'll have to wait until I learn to use AppleScript Studio.
- suggestions welcome at the brushed-up webpage.
