multiple folders for ingesting by date?
« on: June 23, 2008, 08:52:16 PM »
When I have several dates on a card can the photos be put into different folders that are named by the capture date using ingest?

Thanks,
Jim

Jim,

Yes.  What do you want your folders to be named?

For instance you can use the {datesort} variable which will expand to the following:

YYYYMMDD

You just need to set the 'Copy Photos:' popup menu to 'into folder with name' and then enter:

{datesort}

into the 'Folder Name:' text field.  Then when you ingest, the capture date of each file will determine what folder it will be placed into.

HTH,

Kirk,

Thanks, that is what I needed. I am trying the demo and was out of town for a week so time is short to experiment.
