Re: Tryign to import and create subfolders (conditionally) using EXIF/IPTC dates?

EDIT: As I kept letting it run it did start spitting out some files that were renamed images, but it doesn't make sense, I renamed one of the files, and took a look at the metadata and it has what looks to be a normal exif:DateTimeDigitized feild, as do some of the others. Also I was thinking that t...

Re: Tryign to import and create subfolders (conditionally) using EXIF/IPTC dates?

Thanks!!!!!!! That is working in so far as no images being turned into zombie files :) I tried running it on a larger, different test batch, and there still seems to be a problem. I know that some of my images don't have the %exif:DateTimeDigitized feild (some seem to have a DateTimeTaken feild?) an...

Re: Tryign to import and create subfolders (conditionally) using EXIF/IPTC dates?

I just installed the trial then tried the script and got the same result, the interface is indeed nicer in 3.x but the end result seems to be the same when trying to do the renaming I was hoping to do?

Re: Tryign to import and create subfolders (conditionally) using EXIF/IPTC dates?

I am pretty sure the either the EXIF or IPTC or GPS data of 800+ files is ok as when I use only the file rename rule it imports and properly renames over 800 of the 900 test files I have so for the majority I think the metadata is ok. I actually tried both, importing using the renamed files with the...

Re: Tryign to import and create subfolders (conditionally) using EXIF/IPTC dates?

Thanks for the reply. I should perhaps have been more clear. the 1899 photos aren't really the problem in this case but in the second screenshot I posted you will notice that the 2001, 2004, and 2013 are not folders but files that PS created. So my question is more about why the script/rule I posted...

Re: Tryign to import and create subfolders (conditionally) using EXIF/IPTC dates?

Well... I am back. It is apparently not quite as easy as I thought to take what was working for the file name and apply that to (sub)folders. What I am trying now is a regular name but folder and sub folders based on either the EXIF/IPTC/GPS dates, this is what I tried: %EXIFExists%/EXIFExists%exif:...

Re: Tryign to import and create subfolders (conditionally) using EXIF/IPTC dates?

- Have these photos ever been copied / imported into the database in the past? Some of them yes. - Have you tried setting Duplicate Handling to Overwrite file? No, I erase the test destination folder each time. - Before copying, are the images marked (green band with white arrow in upper right corne...

Re: Tryign to import and create subfolders (conditionally) using EXIF/IPTC dates?

Well thank you, again! Your "{dateformat=yyyy-mm-dd-hh-nn-ss}" worked very nicely (and this time I saved it as a separate rule file), but there is a caveat which I am now thinking is not related to the renaming/importing feature? When I am importing, I have a "test" folder (that is flat, no sub dirs...

Re: Tryign to import and create subfolders (conditionally) using EXIF/IPTC dates?

Well that worked, the {replace= ,_} that is, kinda. I ran it a grand total of once and it ran perfectly, it was like this (I am sure) %EXIFExists%/EXIFExists%exif:DateTimeDigitized{replace=:,-}.%FileExtension%NotEXIFExists%/NotEXIFExists %IPTCExists%/IPTCExists%iptc:DateCreated{replace=:,-}.%FileExt...

Re: Tryign to import and create subfolders (conditionally) using EXIF/IPTC dates?

Sorry, I should have been more clear. Originally (and still) I wanted to organize files according to the file EXIF (or more accurate metadata date, EXIF, or if that doesn't exist, IPTC, or if that doesn't exist GPS). Since I am not used to the box for setting up these renaming masks I (re)decided to...

Re: Tryign to import and create subfolders (conditionally) using EXIF/IPTC dates?

Thank you for the support. I took a look and attempted your suggestion but couldn't find where you did it. I am using v2 and noticed you are using v3, is this only available in v3? My file/subfolder dialog box looks like the attached. Thoughts?

Tryign to import and create subfolders (conditionally) using EXIF/IPTC dates?

A few questions now that I think of it, though all closely related. First, I noticed an "if metadata exists" option in the custom defined subfolder section, which, since my collection is a bit messy, made me wonder if it is possible to specify (in the folder and file name import/renaming section) so...

Re: syncing issues

#1 Your right, i did miss that... gads 30gb. Ok boneheaded on my part thanks for restating it. #2 I actually used IDI for awhile as well but when I upgraded to 8.1 I could not get it to work so figured it was time to try out PSU but did consider other programs and tried importing my IDI catalog and ...

Re: syncing issues

First for the database and hard drive. I actually meant that the *database* fills up my hard drive (until there is only a few k left), temporarily at least until it crashes at which point my drives goes back to being relatively free, not that my hard drive is full; I have over 15gb of free space on ...

Re: syncing issues

@Vlad. I will get back to that, as its just a few files (that I have noticed) its not bugging me as much as another issue that has cropped up. @Mike. To be honest I did not know I had half of those settings set, I didn't really tamper much with the settings (though if these weren't the defaults then...
