I'd like to rename my files with a script (using the date -- I know how to do this already) BUT AT THE SAME TIME ... be promted to add/include a sequence of characters of my choice.

Maybe I have to run a second script ("Batch Rename") or use a third party Mac tool or such, but I could imagine that a single script could do this?

I want to include a 4 digit production number at the beginning of the file name followed by a date stamp followed by a running number.

Possible in an all-in-one script?

Thanks,
Martin

I would apprecaite this also. It is one of the features in Photo Mechanic that is so useful -- one can rename according to many IPTC fields. I'd suggest improving this feature (this script, or the batch rename function) so that the rename is more powerful.
