I have IFTTT sending several new desktop wallpapers per day from Reddit to Dropbox. These wallpapers arrive often with very long filenames. I need a way to automatically shorten their names (without renaming to date and time) when they're downloaded to my Mac by Dropbox.
- I want the action to run automatically, so it can't require me to select Finder items or supply the number of characters to keep
- It needs to run by itself as a folder action or AS via Hazel.
Could someone please give me an Automator folder action or AppleScript I can put in Hazel to truncate the filenames after X number of characters?
