    Linking to files with different prefix/suffix (not extension)

    FivePicaPica Level 4

      Hi all,

       

      I think a script may already exist for this, but I can't seem to find it. I'm working on a book with a couple of hundred images from stock agencies. When the photos are purchased, they come with an appended name.

       

      iStock_00000XXXXXXX.jpg

      becomes....

      iStock_00000XXXXXXXMedium.jpg

      and then the file is converted to the correct colour profile and becomes

      iStock_00000XXXXXXXMedium_x.jpg

       

      In the past I've used Namemangler to rename photos and relink, but I'd rather maintain the file naming convention, should the links ever break a year or two down the road when files are migrated.

       

      Does anything exist that might help?

       

      (I'm working with CS5 on Lion)

       

      Thanks!
