I feel like this question has come up before, so apologies in advance if this is a repeat...anyway:

Question is : Is there any way during Ingest that I can get PM to create separate folders for each group of pictures, sorted by the date they were taken?  Right now I'm putting everything into a single dated folder which only tells me the date I Ingested the card. I often end up sorting the shots later, and a common criteria is the date they were taken.  When I download shots with the SW that came with my wife's Canon point-and-shoot it does exactly this sorting for me and I find it pretty useful.

If anyone can suggest a way to get Ingest to do this, I would like to hear about it. If not, I guess it's a future feature request. Thanks,

-Neil

Just select "Copy photos: into folder with name" and for Folder name put "{year4}{month0}{day0}". It's working fine for me.
