BatchRename

With this application you can rename and sort large amounts of photos and other files at once using a specific pattern.
It is especially useful for photos with stored EXIF data. For example, you can move the file Camera-Uploads\0024.jpg to 2015\06\2015-06-25_12-34-02.jpg automatically!
