I have about 200 images in 50 subfolders inside a main folder. I want to move all the image files from the subfolders to one folder so I can browse through them easily.

Is there anyway to easily automate this in OSX? It will take some tedious work to do it by hand.

Just type in ".jpg" into the search box on that window. You'll then see every image. Select them all and move them to where you want them.
