    Hi,

    I am trying to make an Automator workflow that receives image files in Finder and renames them like I would. But "Rename Finder Items" doesn`t seem to discart the original name of the file; ie. I can only append sequential numbers, dates and times. Right now, if my file is:

    nameofthefile.jpg

    the result using my script is:

    20110303-210003nameofthefile.jpg

    And the result that I want is only 20110303-210003.jpg


    Thanks I appreciate your help!

    So my request can`t be done with Automator?
    I don`t want to download another software that seems to reproduce something that I have natively on my Mac.
