Organize digital images into folders according to the date they were taken

PhotosTree is a tiny (17KB) command line tool which tries to organise a set of digital photos into folders according to the dates when they were taken. And so if you shot a set of images on 21st June 2005, for instance, the program might create the folder 2005\06\21, before copying all your photos there.

The fact that this is a command line tool does mean it's not entirely straightforward to use, but don't let that put you off. Once copied to our test folder, for instance, we were able to launch it like

                   PhotosTree . .

The two periods tell the program to use its current folder for both the source and destination, and with that it went to work, scanning JPEG files, looking for those with a tag to say when they were shot, and (if found) creating an appropriate folder and copying them there.

But if you need more control, then there are plenty of other options available. You can tell the program to search a complete folder tree, for instance. There are options to configure the folder naming scheme, to optionally overwrite existing files, even to decide exactly what goes in each folder: shortcuts, internet links, even hard links.

There are also some error checking issues. You must run the program with administrative rights, for instance, but if you don't there's no neat explanation - it just crashes with some horribly complicated error messages.

Once you understand how PhotosTree works, though, this shouldn't be a problem, and overall it becomes a simple way to archive your photos by date.


It could probably be easier to use, but with some configuration PhotosTree provides a quick way to organise your photos according to when they were taken

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.7

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
