Tags to be used as file / folder name

Post by sebastiaankop »

Hi all,

It would be great if you can use any kind of tag to be used in the renaming process. So when I rename my files I can rename the directorys accordin to the meta data I put in my photos. For example \year\client.

This can be a great new feature.

Sebastiaan.

Year already exists. And plenty of other IPTC fields work, check the docs.

Hi afx,

Its true. It did have plenty of options when i checked the docs.

But if i want a path or \ in the filename its translated as a _.

So i can never put files in subdirs according to meta tags.

Move that definition to the subdirectory field not the file name, works like a charm ;-)

Hi afx,

I am trying to understand you.

When in the preferences i can create a rename format. Making a new entry i can give a name and a format.

I have made one with
title: [date]_[time]
format: [date]_[time]

But when i want a file to be renamed to \year\[date]_[time]? The year will be the subdir the files are put into.

How can i make a entry in the rename format preferences that will do that?

Thank you,

Sebastiaan.

renaming is for files only.
moving stuff to other directories is a job for batch queues.

I don't know if I correctly understood what the author actually looks for... but when importing my photos from the card to the disk, the files are renamed using the time information while they are put in a folder named upon the date information.
Here are the lines within the Download.batch file :
rename=[Hour][Minute][Second][subsec]
subdir=[year][month][day]
Press Alt + D (or clik File / Download) and copy the values after the "=" into the corresponding fields.

Hope this helps,

J.-L.
