    Is there a utility that can rename filters in multiple subfolders and then rename the files inside sequentially? Thanks

    e.g. I select my-pictures and it'll do it's magic and sequentially rename all the files in all the subfolders. for each new subfolder, the numbering resets to 1.

    old structure

    my-pictures (parent folder)
    --folder1
    ---- in-costa-rica.png
    ---- swimming-at-beach-costa-rica.png
    -- panama-folder
    ---- panama-canal.png
    ---- with-witch-doctor.png

    desired/new structure

    my-pictures (parent folder)
    -- folder1
    ---- 0001.png
    ---- 0002.png
    -- panama-folder
    ---- 0001.png
    ---- 0002.png

    Better Rename 9. Should work easily since going to sequence is easy than the other way. You can do it via exif info since it's very photo capable. If you have GPS info you might even be able to name on that, although I haven't tried it.
