AppleScript Help Needed - Download + Rename Image Files

5+ Year Member

Msg#: 4060230 posted 9:44 pm on Jan 13, 2010 (gmt 0)

I would like to make an AppleScript where I can point to an image url such as http://example.com/image.jpg and download that file to a specified folder on my computer. Ideally, I could set the script to also re-name the downloaded image. For example, rename the above referenced "image.jpg" file to "newimagename.jpg". Any suggestions for this? Seems like it would be an easy one but I am very new to AppleScripts...

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

(I have a list of image files I need to download + rename, and I was hoping to achieve this with an AppleScript)

PHP can read files with file_get_contents('http://whereever.com/image.jpg')
