Automated Disorganization

I just imported a bunch of photos from my phone to my computer using Google's Picasa application. I configured the import to organize photos into folders named with the dates the photos were taken.

However, rather than help me organize the photos by date, Picasa appears to have put hundreds of photos into dozens of date-named folders that don't match the dates that the photos were taken. Photos taken together are now scattered across many folders.

For example, the folder named "2011-08-04" contains photos taken on the following dates: 2011-06-05, 2011-06-08, 2011-06-13, 2011-06-16, 2011-08-01. It contains no photos from 2011-08-04. There are photos from 2001-08-04, but they are scattered across other folders.

Rather than organize my photos, importing the photos with Picasa has made a big mess; and I can't find what I'm looking for.
