Not wanting to open Lightroom, Darktable or other photo library apps to simply import/copy photos from my camera's memory card, I wrote a script to fetch photos' date-taken time stamp and copy them into a date-labelled folder structure:
This admittedly simple task ended up also helping with re-organizing messy photo folders and turned out to be an interesting journey through the exiftool docs, running Python subprocesses and dealing with character encodings.
I hope this little app will be useful to some who want to organize their photos by date or those who are wondering why filenames with unicode characters are such a pain on windows 🤨 ...
Find it on GitLab here
Naturally I keep finding small nice-to-have things that I want to add (see the "roadmap" section in the README on GitLab 🙃) without it turning into a big, bloaty app. So there may be updates on the process here some time in the future. Feel free to suggest more features.
