I use Windows machines and Macs at my office.  In Windows I can take a group of files, let's say JPG's of a factory tour, and when I upload them into Windows, I can "select all", right click and chose "rename".  I rename the first file "102511 Widget Tour (1)" and press "enter" Windows automatically renames all the JPG's to "102511 Widget Tour" and progresses the number in the parentheses.  In OS X there is not even a "rename" function when multiple items are selected.  I've looked at using Automater, but it seems that I would have to construction a new action each time.  Any ideas?

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7), OS X 10.7.2
