Easily rename individual photos


How often does this happen: you have a folder of photos that are either unnamed or all named the same, and you want to rename each one individually (John at party, Mary and Tom, etc.)? It happens to me all the time. I like to name photos individually so that they come up when I do a spotlight search for photos of specific people or places.

Leopard makes it easy. Just open a folder of photos in Coverflow view, and as you view each photo, click RETURN and type a new file name. Then click return again to enter the new name and use the arrow key to go to the next photo. This way you can just keep typing and moving on, without using the trackpad or mouse, and without opening any other programs. Very easy.
