    I have a directory that has about 800 folders in it. Each folder has 4-22 pictures in it named 1,2,3,4,5 etc. I would like to extract all of these pictures from all 800 folders into one folder, renaming the pictures so they don't overwrite each other. I don't care what the final names will be, but I would like to do it in a way that is automated. What do you guys think? If someone knows automator actions I would appreciate it as well.

    There was a post over on macosxhints.com about something very similar to what you want to do. The main hint just deals with moving files from subfolders to one main folder, but in some of the comments it looked like people were able to deal with duplicate file names.
