I'm looking for some software to help organize my photo collection based on EXIF data.
What'd I'd like to do is have it create folders based on date(s) taken. So my folder structire would look something like:

\\Photos\2010\2010-04-07\<date>-<time>.jpg

I just want it to scrape the EXIF data in each photo and auto create the folders/files based on that data.

Suggestions?

Thanks!

I don't think it can import photos, it just shows you the contents of a given folder structure, but XnView / XnViewMP can sort images in a given folder according to the EXIF date.

I've actually found a nice unix tool to run on my unRaid server to do this via cron job. The only thing I'm struggling with now is that I want it to seperate based on file extensions (so jpgs go in one folder, pngs in another, movs in another etc) and since *nix is case senstive it's making /jpg and /JPG folders :(
