Currently Being ModeratedDec 25, 2008 9:52 PM (in response to Bob OHalloran)in iPhoto '08 and I believe iPhoto 6 there is an export option to use the photo title as the file name - nand there are several programs that will rename photos either before you impor them or after you expor them - do not change their name within the iPhoto library - I use name mangler - search MacUpdate for it and others

Iphoto tracks the location of a file on the HD by it’s path. Change any element of the path and iPhoto loses the pic. This obviously includes the filename.
Add a title to a pic in iPhoot, then if you want to export the pic simply use the File -> Export command and use the ‘Title as Filename’ option.
