Windows only: Adebis Photo Sorter digs through all of your messy photos from aeons ago, sorting them by date, groups and type. Because sorting through 16GB worth of photos is everybody's idea of fun.
To use the program, select the folder that you want to organise, and select a folder where you want Adebis Photo Sorter to copy your newly organised photos to (it won't delete your originals). You'll need to select how you want your files to be structured and the filters you want to apply to your photos. Adebis sorts the photos based on the EXIF data of each photo.
The program supports the majority of popular image formats, including JPEG, TIFF, DNG (Adobe); NEF, NRW (Nikon); CR2 (Canon); ARW (Sony); PEF (Pentax); ORF (Olympus); RW2, RAW (Panasonic). Apart from photo sorting, this tool enables you to quickly rename multiple photos using a mask, form groups of photos on the basis of the time difference between them and sort images of specific formats that were created within a certain time frame.
Adebis Photo Sorter solves the following typical tasks:
- Sorting and structuring of the entire photo collection on the user's system
- Batch renaming of photos with the help of user-defined masks
- Creation of chronologically sorted photo series from multiple source folders
- Inclusion of EXIF data into filenames during batch renaming
When you're done selecting your options, hit OK and the program will take care of the rest. It's no Picasa, but it's a useful tool for keeping your photos manually managed, if that is your preferred method. Adebis Photo Sorter is available as freeware for Windows only.
