Here’s what’s changed:

    * Partitioning is implemented.
    * File names and folders are assigned with cards taken in order by the date/time of the first (alphabetical order by file name) image on the card. Usually this will put the cards in the order in which they were used.
    * Assignment of auto-numbers no longer spread across cards; each card gets consecutive numbers.
    * Files are arranged into number-range folders in card order, without intermixing. Cards can go across folders, and a folder can hold images from several cards.
    * New {@SourcePath} macro, usable only in folder arrangement, is set to relative path between source path (if Start is pressed) or card DCIM folder (if Cards is pressed) and image.
    * Bug fix: On Windows, files left open prevented folders from being manually renamed until IIP was exited.
    * Bug fix: On OS X, metadata template folder (ImageIngester-IPTC.xmp) was located in wrong place. Probably cause of “can’t open metadata template? errors.
    * Bug fix: Mounted-card status on main window not properly updated after Ingestion Monitor panel is closed.
    * Multi-Camera-Shoot feature now checked out with Version 3.1.x.
    * Several other minor bug fixes.

With the new {@SourcePath} macro you can mirror the folder structure on the card (or other source) on the ingested folder arrangement.

Dave--

Suppose you have a card with this folder structure below DCIM:

DCIM/100ND200
DCIM/200ND200

Then for the images in DCIM/100ND200, {@SourcePath} is equal to 100ND200, and for those in DCIM/200ND200 it's equal to 200ND200.

You could then set up folder naming like this:

photos/{@SourcePath}

and get images from DCIM/100ND200 ingested into photos/100ND200 and those from DCIM/200ND200 ingested into photos/200ND200.

Or, if you ingest from a hard drive with a deeper folder structure, you can recreate several levels of output under the primary (and backup) folders.

Think of {@SourcePath} as the relative path (zero or more folders) between the source root and the image. The source root is either:

1. The source folder (as shown in the main window), if you press the Start button (or Choose and Start from the thumbnail viewer), or
2. The DCIM folder, if you press the Cards button.

Ah!

So if using an Epson P-3000 with a structure like -

Backup/20080622.001
Backup/20080623.001
Backup/20080623.002

Theoretically, I could point IIP3 to ingest "Backup", create the Folder Arrangement and Names sample below-

{@SourcePath,1,4}-{@SourcePath,5,2}-{@SourcePath,7,2}-{@SourcePath,10,2}

and IIP would create subfolders in the assigned Primary and Backup locations that were-

2008-06-22-01
2008-06-23-01
2008-06-23-02

That's right, Dave. Although those dates are also probably also in the EXIF data.
