I would personally create a DOS batch file, but since the files are in multiple subfolders, you would have to use some method to feed the output of the DIR command (with appropriate parameters, like DIR *.JPG /S /B) into the Rename command.

Much too limited and clunky.

I use a simple Perl script. It gives total flexibility to:

* Iterate over a folder structure

* Filter based on folder names, file names, extensions or other file attributes

* Access meta data (e.g. EXIF fields) so they can be incorporated in the new filename
