OS X Workflow: Batch Editing – Renaming a Long List of Files
by Jay Hilgert
on July 18, 2008
I’m not sure if this will apply to everyone in the design world, but renaming a huge list of files can be a real pain, and I’ve found myself in need of batch editing countless times. It’s so much faster and easier to do a “Batch Rename” to save a ton of time, and a ton of clicks. OS X has a built-in utility called Automator that can do just that, among many other things. I’ll keep it simple for now, but depending on the reaction I get, maybe I can go into more detail about Automator in future posts.
