How do I stop Automator from reordering photos when renaming them?

    I'm attempting to use Automator to rename picture files. I select "Make Sequential" and put the name in that I want. However, once everything is completed my pictures are not in the same order they were out of the camera. I like how my camera imports the photos in the order that I took them. Now when I look through my pictures my vacation is completely out of chronological order. How do can I set Automator so that this does not happen in the future?

    Forget Automator, Try Name Mangler !

    Hey Mike,

    I had the same trouble and another 'Mac Rumors Budd'y put me onto this program. It's called 'Name Mangler'... and it's great !

    Easy to use and doesn't mess up your order. I have it sitting in my dock for all my re-naming needs inc. re-naming with sequential numbering after a common batch name eg LA Holiday Apr09 001, LA Holiday Apr09 002 etc etc

    It's a shareware, so a donation might be in order if you like it as much as I do :)
