Import iPhone images excluding Whatsapp (lores)

Post by fenschop » 28 Aug 18 10:23

Is there a way to automatically exclude certain images form import. As the family iPhones take over more and more from the EOSes, I feel the need to import those as well, but not the big mess of images that enter the phone through Whatsapp or other lores sources.

Selection could happen on filename but also on EXIF properties like resolution.

Is this a task for a pre-import script? Or a copy handler script?

On an Android I just use "Tasker" to control things and "AndFTP" to upload all relevant directories on a scheduled basis then a batch file on the server to move the relevant files to relevant locations, then use "scan for missing folders" and "verify folder" when I want to bring them into the PSU, this also works much the same on my Laptop which uploads images on a scheduled basis if I'm going to be out mobile for a while and want to have everything backed up remotely, I also run PSU on the laptop so I can start labelling and cataloguing the images when out and about changed files get FTP'ed back to my server on a regular basis if required (and bandwidth available ;-) )

How to save incoming media
By default, photos and videos you receive through WhatsApp will automatically be saved in the WhatsApp folder of your iPhone's Photos.

To stop incoming media from saving to your Photos
To stop media from being saved to your Photos, go to WhatsApp > Settings > Chats > turn off Save to Camera Roll.

To save incoming media from specific chats or groups
You can also choose to save incoming media from specific chats or groups. Tap your contact's or group's name to open the Contact Info or Group Info screen, where you can change the Save to Camera Roll setting to your liking:

Default (On/Off): Incoming media will or won't be saved according to what you've set in WhatsApp > Settings > Chats > Save to Camera Roll.
Always: All incoming media is saved regardless of your Save to Camera Roll setting.
Never: All incoming media isn't saved regardless of your Save to Camera Roll setting.
if You want to use Whatsapp with some extra feature and function's if yes then WhatsApp Plus Apk is available this mod version Whatsapp has some feature's that allow you to use Whatsapp even more better.
