I originally posted this in the Migration Issues forum but on second thought this forum might be a more appropriate place to post this...

My camera original jpegs are together in the same folder as the RAW files. Is there anyway with ImageIngesterPro to automate the process of splitting them up into separate folders?

Specifically, into sub-folders derived from the name the of the original containing folder?

i.e.- some form of replace x with y in original containing folder's name as a basis for creating the name of sub-folder a.

e.g.- If the original containing folder was named: AkAdachi_orig_20061019_description
then replace "orig" with "orig-raw" for the new sub-folder name containing the moved RAW files. So it becomes:
-> AkAdachi_orig-raw_20061019_description: for the RAW files moved into the new sub-folder from the original containing folder.
-> AkAdachi_orig-jpeg_20061019_description: for the jpeg files moved into the new sub-folder from the original containing folder.

Or for that matter separate the different file types upon ingestion?

If not, is there some other Mac file or folder utility which allows one to do so?

Thanks,

Anthony

Anthony--

I think you can put files with different extensions into different folders, but only if the extension is part of the folder name. Use the new {@extension} macro in Version 2.3 (available in beta).
