I am pulling photos from directories to put on a card for a digital photo frame for Jacqui. So I am checking every folder in /Pictures and I am finding a silly amount of duplication. I have one family christmas in 3 places for instance. Disk space doesn’t matter but a little more organisation would be nice. It would also be laborious and prone to error. The error does not matter as the photos are on the mini and a hd and mirrored on another hd but the laborious does. So that’s 9 folders of that one event. Daft. So there has to be a program that wil do all the sorting surely?
- place all dupes into a single folder
- sort all remaining images by exif data
- place all those images into folders by month/year
- place all images with no or incomplete exif data into another folder
Such code has to exist so I shall start trawling photo forums later today.
