Renaming folders based on EXIF

Recommended Posts

Ive got tens of thousands of photo's in directories and I wanted to re-touch the folder dates and possibly names according to the date the photo's were taken.... anyone got good ideas???

I've written a script. Here it is:

#!/bin/bash
PHOTOBASE='/ici/partage/photos'
SORTDIR='a_trier'

function erreur() {
 echo Erreur: $1 >&2
 exit 1
}

cd "$PHOTOBASE" || erreur "Impossible d'aller dans $PHOTOBASE/"
compte=1
while read jpg; do
 read iY iM iD ih im is < <(identify -format "%[EXIF:DateTime]" "$jpg" | sed -r -n 's/^[[:space:]]*([[:digit:]]{4})[^[:digit:]]*([[:digit:]]{2})[^[:digit:]]*([[:digit:]]{2})[^[:digit:]]*([[:digit:]]
{2})[^[:digit:]]*([[:digit:]]{2})[^[:digit:]]*([[:digit:]]{2}).*$/\1 \2 \3 \4 \5 \6/p')
 iDir="${iY}-${iM}"
 iFile="${iY}-${iM}-${iD}-${ih}${im}${is}"
 echo "${iDir}/${iFile} : $jpg (${compte})"
 compte=$(( $compte + 1 ))
 if [ -n "$iDir" ]; then
[ -d "$iDir" ] || mkdir "$iDir"
[ -d "$iDir" ] || erreur "Impossible de créer $iDir/"
suf=
if [ -e "${iDir}/${iFile}.jpg" ] || [ -e "${iDir}/${iFile}_01.jpg" ]; then
  [ -e "${iDir}/${iFile}_01.jpg" ] || mv "${iDir}/${iFile}.jpg" "${iDir}/${iFile}_01.jpg"
  suf=02
  while [ -e "${iDir}/${iFile}_${suf}.jpg" ]; do suf=$(awk '{printf "%02u", $1+1}' <<<"$suf"); done
  suf=_$suf
fi
mv "$jpg" "${iDir}/${iFile}${suf}.jpg"
 fi
done < <(find "${SORTDIR}/" -iname "*.jpg" -type f -print)

PHOTOBASE is a directory that contains a "a_trier" directory (=to_sort), and other directories will be created inside, based on year and month (eg: 200703).

 

Besides, I've written another script, that put the remaining files (videos) in the right folders too:

#!/bin/bash
PHOTOBASE='/ici/partage/photos'
SORTDIR='a_trier'

function erreur() {
 echo Erreur: $1 >&2
 exit 1
}

cd "$PHOTOBASE" || erreur "Impossible d'aller dans $PHOTOBASE/"
compte=1
while read fY fM fD fh fm fs file; do
 fDir="${fY}-${fM}"
 fFile="${fY}-${fM}-${fD}-${fh}${fm}${fs}"
 fExt="$(tr 'A-Z' 'a-z' <<<"${file##*.}")"
 echo "${fDir}/${fFile}.${fExt} : $file (${compte})"
 compte=$(( $compte + 1 ))
 if [ -n "$fDir" ]; then
[ -d "$fDir" ] || mkdir "$fDir"
[ -d "$fDir" ] || erreur "Impossible de créer $fDir/"
suf=
if [ -e "${fDir}/${fFile}.${fExt}" ] || [ -e "${fDir}/${fFile}_01.${fExt}" ]; then
  [ -e "${fDir}/${fFile}_01.${fExt}" ] || mv "${fDir}/${fFile}.${fExt}" "${fDir}/${fFile}_01.${fExt}"
  suf=02
  while [ -e "${fDir}/${fFile}_${suf}.${fExt}" ]; do suf=$(awk '{printf "%02u", $1+1}' <<<"$suf"); done
  suf=_$suf
fi
mv "$file" "${fDir}/${fFile}${suf}.${fExt}"
 fi
done < <(find "${SORTDIR}/" -type f -printf "%TY %Tm %Td %TH %TM %TS %p\n")

 

Both scripts are interruptible anytime with CtrlC. HTH.

 

Yves.

 

[edit:]I've forgotten the most important: how does it answer to your question? Unless I've misunderstood your post, you could move all your current folders into PHOTOBASE/SORTDIR, and they'd get sorted again and the destination folders would be named after the exif data (and photographs too).[/edit]

hmmm.. and this is still JPEG's ... have still to work out how to get it to work with my raw photo's ...???

 

Anyone spot what I did stupid???

Hi!

 

I don't know how reliable the CODE snipplet is, but if it reflects your code, then there's an error there: "< (".

The spacing is important: The first '<' is to instruct bash to read the following file as standard input to the command (read). Then there's a space, and then "<(" without spaces, which refers to the system's temporary file that contains the output of the enclosed command.

 

In short, the command inside <(...) (that is: the identify|sed pipe) is executed. In Unix, everything is a file, and the output of this pipe is no exeption; the <(...) construct refers to this file, which is given as a standard input to the "read" command. This is a standard way of doing things in bash to keep the first command (read) from being executed in a subshell.

 

Besides, your "sed" command seems to be all broken...

 

Yves.
