OK... I saw that.  But how do I make it work as I intend?  In my example the rename string "image###.[ext]" causes:

image010.jpg -> image001.jpg
image011.jpg -> image002.jpg
image011.dng -> image003.dng
image012.jpg -> image004.jpg

Thus, it separates the two image011 images into image002 and image003 and "disassociates" their basenames.
