[resolved] changing domains - need to change image locations smoothly (3 posts)

    So I have recently purchased a domain I've been hounding for a while, though this can become complicated. I have some 300 posts with images. The images are linked with the full adress : "http://www.example1.com/photos/*.jpg" and now I need to change that on all of the posts to something like "http://www.example2.com/photos/*.jpg". I will of course copy all the pictures to the new domain, but Im wondering: Is there an easy way to download the database file and search it for the string "http://www.example1.com/" and exchange every piece of text containing those exact words with "http://www.example2.com/" or can that create more problems. If at all possible, how would one go about?

    Thanks a bunch guys, you rock.
