One Question: Automator?

So how could you rename files randomly with Automator?
Say I have a folder with subfolders,and each subfolder has files in it variously named, could I EASILY rename the files to say file00001 to Filennnnn at random and keeping the orginal extension?

I looked into this some time ago and it didn't seem to be possible, you could tag a random string on the end but you might get clashes for example.

I suspect the Automator that several of you promote is not as useful as it might seem for someone who is not a wizard with programming.

I'd have bought Renamer but at $25 it seems way overpriced to me for a one-trick pony, especially now we see in the app store much more complex apps much cheaper, iPhoto is $20 as an example. If it was $5 it would be an easy decision.

previously been a pc user I see the need for a product like this, there was nothing like it in Windows. But having use OS X for a few years now I am puzzled why anyone would pay $25 for something Automator does for free

Yes I agree with b_dubb Automator is free and actually allows you to do more.

one word: Automator. the Automator app that ships with your Mac will perform this task for you without costing you an additional $25

cheers
