Move *into* folder.

The tag <\> simply creates a folder based on the text before the tag.

You already know that can extract data from inside files. For example artist name, mp3 bitrate, exif date, file size, etc. So if you write this:

<\>

Flash Renamer will create a folder based on the exif date (for example "2010-12-18") and the move the file into here. It will give the file a new name based on the right side of <\>, in this case the same name as before ()

It is possible to use several <\>, for example:

<\><\> <br> <br>... will sort your mp3s! <br> <br>But you can only move files "further up" the folder structure, not "backwards" <br> <br>You can use is in all functions accepting <tags>. Easiest is the "free format" function in my opinion. <br> <br>// Dan <br> <br> <br> <br> <br>Marcel wrote: <br>> <br>> Dan, hello, <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> Cud you give me a bit more informtion on this move folders thing? <br>> <br>> How todo this ? <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> Thanks n rgds/Marcel. <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> Van: Dan (RL Vision) [mailto:*****@*****] <br>> Verzonden: maandag 13 september 2010 19:07 <br>> Aan: Marcel <br>> Onderwerp: Re: FR-Updates <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> //snip// <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> FR can already move your photos into folders based on exif properties.

It definitely is. <br>> <br>> But in view of the competition is this category of software, I guess you have kept the price low. <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> Whilst I genuinely think it is one of the best flexible products – the price as such and considering <br>> <br>> that the product is hardly promoted (in magazines and so on), I cannot really believe that you <br>> <br>> making a living of this, i.e. surely you ae having a normal steady job and FR is something you <br>> <br>> further develop once you have more time. <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> Quite understandably if this is indeed the case. <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> But if you want to put extra's in, new stuff I mean, this may take too much time/money and <br>> <br>> cannot be considered. <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> Example: <br>> <br>> I run Directory Opus in combo with FR. <br>> <br>> Directory Opus is pricy, but the features and power are incredible. <br>> <br>> On top GPSoft has a very active support forum with a couple experts there who seem to have all <br>> <br>> the answers and solutions and hardly sleep. <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> For some renaming I use DO but most renaming I send the files to FR. <br>> <br>> One of the renames I mentioned below. <br>> <br>> Another one is that DO creates a subfolder after the date of shooting. <br>> <br>> e.g. photos are shot 13-09-2010 <br>> <br>> I select all photo's <br>> <br>> Click Rename <br>> <br>> select folder after exif date <br>> <br>> then a folder is created 13-09-2010 <br>> <br>> and files are moved to that folder. <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> anyway, forget that…, <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> Directory Opus also has an option to convert images. <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> FR have a MP3 button. <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> Suggestion: <br>> <br>> what about adding an IMAGE button <br>> <br>> that can do things that Directory Opus is also doing, like <br>> <br>> resize, rotate, maybe some other things. <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> Here you have a screendump. <br>> <br>> It can custom <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> The resize pull down menu includes <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> Anyway, as said, may this is too much work… <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> It is just an idea. <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> good luck! <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> brgds/Marcel. <br>> <br>> ps.
