There was Orson Welles "War of the Worlds".I think aliens been round a lot longer then 1947...
Some of these will support import from camera/card with renaming and key wording. You can have it go to an external automaticallyI could load Linux on an old box and give that a go (Thanks Red)
Will likely try Ifranview (thanks NBB) and the Adobe Bridge think (Thanks Jon) first as I'm currently running windows on everything I own.
Not too concerned about future support or any of that as I'm hoping this will be a one shot cleanup - after that I'll try to maintain a system (as Jon mentioned - external drive with backups) - I would have to get my wife on board (as she takes way more photos than I do) but I do have a network drive so it shouldn't be a hard sell.
Anyway - Thanks all for the advice - I'm too lazy to multi-quote but I am reading all of your replies and taking notes
Wish I still had the floppies. I had Windows 1.0. No overlapping windows, 640x480 displayUnlike Dav and his posted artsy PG images, I tended to save those with less clothing. It's all old now as a basic adult filter off DuckDuckGo search will produce more and better quality than I had saved. I suspect Dav has nekid ones too.
Have not really bothered with it for some time.
My first Windows 3.1 PC (early 90s) was so light on RAM, I had to leave Windows and view 14.4k downloaded images in DOS at 256 colors max. Like a coin-op peep show - a process you had to go through.
I do have a sizable collection of "classic" actresses and celebrities I grew up with that I could not post here. Even with these, newer better quality images are out there. Far more fakes than years ago.

I blame 640 x 480, Wolfenstein 3D and Doom for my earlier than normal vision problems. Then again I just got old.Wish I still had the floppies. I had Windows 1.0. No overlapping windows, 640x480 display
First business computer for me was the original IBM with 64K, 2 floppy drives, green screen, and PC DOS 1.1I blame 640 x 480, Wolfenstein 3D and Doom for my earlier than normal vision problems. Then again I just got old.
I still have floppy copies of DOS 6.22(?) and Win 3.11. I jumped into the Windows game at 3.1. Never saw of used anything earlier.
I may still have a working Pentium 200 MHz PC and HDD that last ran them. Been a long time since I tried to join them all - the year 2000. No, the PC did not blow up or anything drastic. Yes, that was a Windows 95 era PC, but had a 1.6 GB HDD I figured I'd have some crazy 3.11 fun with. Last I checked (years ago) the 1.6 GB HDD was still healthy.
Not sure what monitor I'd use. I do have an old HP 4:3 LCD that might work. If I can find its brick. I have a hard time letting go of things. I'm not a hoarder. Well ...
