Folder name?
« on: May 02, 2006, 06:36:52 PM »
Is it possible to have the folder use 6 characters instead of 8 dropping the "20"?
Thanks
Joe

By "20" I'll guess that you mean the "20" in "2006"...

Which variable are you using?  If it is {datesort} then you can use {year2}{month0}{day0} instead.

Where do I put it? I don't see an option/place for the variables.

Change the Copy Photos: popup menu to read "into folder with name"
Then in the Folder Name: text field enter your variables.  If you want to create a folder hierarchy, use the '/' character to create it:

{year4}/{month0}/{day0}

Of course you don't have to create a folder hierarchy if you don't want to.  Just leave out the slashes.

HTH,
