    I'm looking for a free program which will let me pick about 80 folders with photos with unique names in them and with some sub-folders with photos with unique names in them and then copy all the photo files from the 80 photo folders and sub-folders into one folder.

    I"ve already renamed 3,000 photos to unique names. I just want to avoid having to manually copy and paste photos from every folder into one folder.

    Well, I just renamed 3,000 photos contained in over 80 folders/sub folders so that the photo file names are unique so I can put them on a DVD and watch them on the TV. If they are in folders, then they will not play unless I select the folder on the DVD player. If all the files are on the DVD without being in folders, then they all will play consequtively.

    If all the sub(sub) folders containing pictures are in one folder ....
    Do a windows search for ... *.jpg in the top folder ... (for example) ...
    Then from the search results ... Select all (CRTL+A) .. Copy (CRTL+C) ..
    Then paste (CRTL+V) to the new folder.

    I hope all the renames are unique file names ... or they will be overwritten.

    Be sure to check the search count ... Then the new folder tally .. to see if you got them all.
