PhotoArchiver is the new website.

Visit it now!  This site will be going away completely, soon...

Current version 1.2.2

NEW:  v1.2.2 fixes the Output Browse button putting the path into the Source textbox.  

This is a quick app I wrote to archive my photos.  It reads the modified file time and sorts the pictures into directories based on the date.  It creates a directory for the year, and a sub directory for each month (as long as there are pictures dating from that month, of course, and naturally that's where those dated pictures go).  

So if you think you'll like organizing your photos this way, this might work for you.  Having my photos organized this way I find photos faster, remember dates better as I'm forced to if I want to find the photos, and I have a large collection across quite a few computers between me and my wife and this makes it easier to merge the collections on backup media, and weed out duplicates in the process freeing lots of backup space.    

One word of CAUTION:  I am not responsible for your data, or what this app does to it!  The only thing this app does is MOVE data.
