I thought there was a way to do this, but I've been looking through the manual and it doesn't look like it. I'm trying to find a way to create some additional empty work folders in the same destination directory as the download folder.

For example if the destination is:

YYYYMMDD_job/Raw

then the additional folders might be:

YYYYMMDD_job/Masters
YYYYMMDD_job/Delivery

Thanks,

Andrew

Not possible, Andrew... IIP makes folders on the fly as a part of the naming process.

Thanks for the reply. I used to use Downloader Pro when I was on Windows, and I thought IIP had some of the same features. For what it's worth I think it's a nice option to have and here's how they describe the feature:

"As images are downloaded the plug-in creates empty directories relative to the download directory. For example suppose images are downloaded to the directory D:\Photos and you wish to create a directory for images which require more work called "working", a directory for finished images called "edited" and a directory for images prepared for web pages called "web". Alternatively you may prefer to download your images to a directory named "originals" and have the additional directories at the same level. This can be done be prefixing the directory names with "..\" (".." is a way of specifying the parent directory)."

I know this doesn't conform to Peter's work flow, but many people do prefer to work other ways.

Cheers,

Andrew

Indeed, it does sound like a good idea... I'll enter into my database of suggestions.
