Can one used the word manual work to define a process of a nonphysical work, where there is no need of skills, it is monotonic and there is a lack of automatization?
For example: Someone creates photographs and then each photo has to be renamed (one by one) without a script doing it. How do you call this part of the job?
I seek a word to address every process of the job that has this feature. For example in this sentence: Photographers are able to avoid "manual work" with modern automatised software.
