    When I go on group motorcycle rides, at the end of the ride, I collect everyone's pictures via my Zen's CF adapter. I put them all together and burn them to a disc and give them to everyone.

    This may seem a bit AR, but I really want to have the pictures in chronologial order. Yes, I can use the "Picture Taken on Date" arrangement to do this, but I would like to then rename the pictures in a sequential order, so they remain chronological when opened in the more common "Name" arrangement, after I give the discs to everyone else.

    Is there a simple tool for doing this? I know I can manually rename every single picture, but what a pain in the ass.

    Thanks!

    There's a free program that I think can do this it's called Irfanview.

    I personally use CKrename which is free and has the ability to rename files and apply a new sequence.

    Have a look at Breeze Browser Pro. It's a really good photo browser with batch functions like renaming (including renaming based on EXIF data).

    This one is really good. You can pull some amazing stuff off with this when it comes to mass renaming. Not the easiest or prettiest program, but it's worked marvels for me on occasion.
