If you have a file or folder with a number in the name, like “Image 1.jpg” or “Images 1” you can duplicate it in the Finder and the new copy will automatically increment the number. Instead of using Command+D, drag and drop into the same folder with the Option key held down. The copy will be named “Image 2.jpg” or “Images 2” and so on. So if you create a folder named “Accounts 2008” and then drag and drop with the option key five times, you will get folders for the years 2009 through 2013.
