sort-pictures(1) 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.
