Photo organizer

Place this script file in a folder full of pictures, run it, and it will organize the pictures into folders by the day they were taken.

Ruby Version:

Run:

$ ruby picsort.rb

Code:

# filename: picsort.rb
#!/usr/bin/env ruby

require 'fileutils'
require 'exifr'

def picDate(file)
  begin 
    ex = EXIFR::TIFF.new(file) || EXIFR::JPEG.new(file)
    (ex.date_time).strftime "%Y%m%d" if ex.exif?
  rescue
    File.mtime(file).strftime "%Y%m%d"
  end
end

def isPic?(file)
  [".JPG",".JPEG",".PNG",".AVI",".WAV",".NEF",".MOV",".TIFF"]
    .include? File.extname(file).upcase
end

print "Creating dirs"
Dir.foreach(".") do |f|
  dt = picDate f 
  Dir.mkdir dt and print '.' if isPic? f unless File.directory? dt
end

print "\nMoving pics"
Dir.foreach(".") do |f| 
  FileUtils.mv(f, picDate(f)+'/'+f) and print '.' if isPic? f
end
puts

Python Version:

Run:

$ python picsort.py

Code:

# filename: picsort.py
from PIL import Image
from PIL.ExifTags import TAGS
import os
import time
from datetime import datetime

def get_exif(path):
    ret = {}
    i = Image.open(path)
    info = i._getexif()
    for tag, value in info.items():
        decoded = TAGS.get(tag, tag)
        ret[decoded] = value
    return ret

def picDate (path):
    res = ""
    try:
        res = datetime.strptime(get_exif(path)['DateTimeOriginal'], "%Y:%m:%d %H:%M:%S")
    except:
        res = ""
    return res

def isPic (path):
    file, ext = os.path.splitext(path)
    return (ext.upper() in [".JPG",".JPEG",".PNG",".NEF",".TIFF"])

import glob
for file in glob.glob('*'):
    if isPic(file):
        if picDate(file) != "":
            dir = picDate(file).strftime("%Y-%m-%d")
            if not(os.path.exists(dir)):
                os.mkdir(picDate(file).strftime("%Y-%m-%d"))
            os.rename(file, dir + '/' + file)
