My father is used to a computer system that is a little dated. He's always naming files with underscores and periods. When I get my hands on the files, I want them to be renamed so that they'll play friendly with my applications. I'm looking for a way to create an Automator service that I can use to rapidly replace periods with spaces or dashes. I have the JuneBug actions which comes close, but it won't replace periods. I know I could use Name Mangler, but I have to do it so often, I'd really really like to get it onto the Mac OS services context menu and save myself a lot of clicks in the future. So, I'd like automator to take this: family.2002.sandiego.jpg and turn it into: family-2002-sandiego.jpg Anyone know how I can do that with Automator?
