    Hi ppl,
    Please help me out. I created aliases for 50 the photos which I like from a folder (which contains a LOT more photos). But now, I had to move that folder to another location. The problem is the aliases' won't register the new location. Is there a way around this? Or is there a way to batch change the aliases' original reference?

    Aliases SHOULD update no matter where you move the origionals, that's the cool thing about them. If what you say is true then there's something strange going on.

    Why not just delete the aliases and remake them; highlight the 50 images and then select 'make alias' You can use automator to batch-rename them if you need to.
