2 Questions about ingesting
« on: September 14, 2020, 09:22:35 AM »
Hi all!

I have 2 questions I hope you might be able to help me with.

1. I ingest my photo's into a folder with the date. However this appaers to be the date of ingest and not the date the pictures were taken. Is there anyway to change this? (See picture in attachement for my current ingest settings.)

2. If I have pictures from several different days on my memory card, is there anyway to ingest the photo's into several separate folders (a folder for each date)?

Thank you all in advance for any usefull feedback and tips!

Kinds regards,
Gijs

Change the "Copy Photos:" popup to read "into folder with name".  Then in the "Folder Name:" field that appears enter:

{date}

or you may like {datesort} better.

That should do it.

Kirk,
As a 2 day user of PMP+ I appreciated your suggestion of folder {date} {datesort}. The latter meets with the format I have established over the last 16 years......

I normaly create a year (2020, 2021) folder then subdivide that into 12 (2001 and 2002 etc) and have my primary destination as ..folder\2011\ - my question is can I use two variables in the "folder name"?  That way (being lazy) I only need to select the year and then PMP+ will populate each month and subfolder per day? Hope the query makes sense.

TIA
Dave

Yes, you can use two (or more) variables for a folder name.
