That's basically it. I'd rather it not allow for files that are non-png though.

Well, I believe for the file portion of the selected directory, you can type *.png* and it will select all files in that directory that have .png in their name. So if you're just dumping a folder of photos to another, that would do it. Otherwise I don't know much more in-depth for batch files.

Get info on the properties of that file
copy the path and take note of the filename
make a .bat windows batch file to rename the file you drag onto it as a string containing that path and filename according to:

The -y prompts an error if there is a duplicate file, use /y if you're over writing files.

.bat files in Windows, Terminal or Applescript in OSX
