Better Finder Rename looks like a godsend! Before I adopt this and use it, though, I have the problem of duplicate images—2, 3 or 4 of the same photo. (I let syncing get out of hand somehow!!) Any such thing as a "Better Finder Duplicate Remover" ????to help me reliably get rid of dupes? Renaming duplicates doesn't seem to be constructive. Many thanks for this video!!
