Rename Screen Shots AppleScript

Working in a support role means I spend alot of time using the built in OS X screen capture facilities, which generally means I end up with hundreds of Screen Shot ****.png files scattered all over my desktop.

Today I started working on the AppleScript below, which I have set as a folder action on my default screen capture folder.

It’s far from complete, and is definitely a current project, however I thought I’d share it at each stage.

To change your default screen capture directory, launch terminal and run the following command

defaults write location /screencapturepath/;killall SystemUIServer

Would you do it differntly? Have an improvement to suggest? Drop me a note below.
