    Hello. I'm a newbee in Mac, been working on windows, so finally dove into the Mac world. After going to the store practically every day I finally was able to get a hold of a MBP High-Def 2.6 17 inch at the store.

    My question is downloading pictures on the Mac. On windows I'm able to download the files from the camera and the program would change the name of the file to use the photo TAGS, i.e. I use the date and time stamp for the filename. I like using this instead of the camera filename because when I print it out at Costco it prints out the filename on the back of the picture.

    Is there a way of doing this with iPhoto? or anything in Mac?

    Hi - and welcome to the Mac

    In your Applications folder you will find an app called Automator.
    Launch the app then create the following workflow...

    1. Photos > Ask for Photos
    2. Files & Folders > Copy Finder Items
    3. Files & Folders > Rename Finder Items.

    You can customise steps 2 and 3 using the drop down menus provided, and then when you are finished, save the workflow as an application. You can then run this whenever you wish.

    Hope that helps.
