Help with Variables... Please...
« on: December 27, 2007, 08:54:47 AM »
So I'm working with Ingest and trying to create a directory structure based on the capture Month, Day and Year with a sub directory for the actual images.

When I put the directory in, I add a \ for the sub directory, but it just uses it in the overall directory name. How do I create a sub directory?

Also I'm trying to add the original filename {Filename} to the IPTC data but when I look at my images after ingest, I only see the variable not the data I'm looking for...

Thank you,

JWR

I am attaching screen shots of my Ingest dialog and my directory structure based on capture year, month, day.  The actual images are in the "day" subdirectory.  The ingest dialog shows how variables are used to create this folder structure.

You should be able to use this example to set up the structure that you want.
