I have a large number of photo folders from a long time ago when I had no naming conventions. Now I name photo folders with the date taken of the first photo right as a prefix.

Problem is I have all these folders I need to rename and it would be excrutiating to do this manually. Is there any way for me to rename folders using Adv Renamer such that I can take the "date taken" metadata from the first photo in each folder and insert that into the folder's exisitng name?

It would be a gigantic help.

No, I'm sorry I don't think you can do that. Folder renaming is only based on the folder properties and not the properties of the files it contains.
