Over the years, I have amassed several 1000s of photos that I have backed up from my iPhone. If memory serves me correctly iOS names them IMG_0001.jpg, IMG_0002.jpg, IMG_0003.jpg etc etc. Now, whenever I have updated my iOS I have always started afresh without restoring from backup. So, I would manually copy my photos over to my PC. This would mean that iOS would name my pictures starting from IMG_0001.jpg again. I have several 1000s of photos in folders across a folder struct like below:
I'd like to get these images all in to one folder "C:\Other Files\Photos"
Would it be possible to do a script that would take the photos in folder 2010 and assuming there were 567 photos in that folder rename them to "0001.jpg", "0002.jpg" ... "0567.jpg" and then move on to 2011 and start from "0568.jpg" and so on for the whole folder structure? This is so that I can have all my photos in one folder, without fear of overwriting duplicates and so that I can copy them back to my iPhone Camera Roll and have them in dated order, with the newly taken photos starting at the end of the camera roll after the older ones.
