Move (or copy) multimedia files to a defined path
Mvfotos copies multimedia files, such as fotos, movies and sounds to a
specific preconfigured path. Use /etc/mvfotos.conf or ~/.mvfotos to
configure the details. Call mvfotos -h for help on the parameters.
It sorts the files according to year and season. This information is
either taken from EXIF (JPEG) or from the file's original creation
date. if necessary, JPEG files are losslessly rotated automatically if the
respective EXIF flag is set.
On my system, all multimedia files from foto and video cameras or
music recorders are stored in /var/data/family and then in
subdirectories according to the file type. See my configuration in
/etc/mvfotos.conf and overwrite that according to your needs.
Then simply plugin a camera, open the files in a foldeer and call on
the command line, e.g.:
mvfotos -p birthday-party /media/camera/DCIM/file1.jpg \
To achieve this, I type "mvfotos -p birthday-party", select the files,
then drag and drop the selected files to the console.
