sort-pictures — sort pictures according to exif date


Sort-pictures uses the exif tags in jpeg pictures recovered by recoverjpeg in directories. It creates hard links to organize sorted pictures.

Running sort-pictures will scan the current directory for files named after the template image?????*.jpg (image followed by at least five characters followed by .jpg). A new hardlink will be created for each file in one of the following directories:

invalid The picture is an invalid JFIF file.
small The picture size is less than 100,000 bytes.
undated Sort-pictures was unable to determine the date of the picture from the exif tags.
YYYY-MM-DD A directory representing the date at which the picture was taken.
