I organise my photos by grouping them in a directory, where the directory takes on the name “created_date title” (e.g. 2016-05-16 Birthday Party). As it became tedious to create a directory and manually group photo sets, I wrote a Ruby script to assist with the heavy lifting. After that, it’s just a matter of providing a title to each created directory.
require 'exifr' require 'fileutils' Dir['*.jpg'].each do |file| date = EXIFR::JPEG.new(file).date_time if date folder = date.strftime('%Y-%m-%d') FileUtils.mkdir_p(folder) unless File.directory?(folder) FileUtils.mv(file, folder) end end
Note: you will first need to run
gem install exifrto install dependencies.
