I am a student and photograph the blackboard often. I'm trying to sort my photos into folders, one folder for each class.

How could I copy all photos taken on Mondays and Wednesdays between 10:30 and 12:00, and add them to a certain folder?

Is there a utility for this, or should I try messing around with powershell?

  • You can certainly use Powershell if you'd like. Though there are existing tools outside of Powershell that have been developed for this purpose. – root Oct 27 '16 at 19:27

Use exiftool's Filename and Directory tag based reorganization ability.

One example from there -- but feel free to research for your exact solution.
Exiftool is a powerful utility.

exiftool -d %Y-%m-%d "-directory<datetimeoriginal" image.jpg

Move 'image.jpg' into a directory with a name given by DateTimeOriginal, in the form '2006-03-27'.

You might want to use something like %Y-%m-%d-%H to organize by the hour and then merge your hours. Or, you might rename your files with a suffix %Y-%m-%d-%H%M and then sort them out for the 10:30-12:00 time window.

Update: Check PhotoMove 2.5 it is based on exiftool and referred from its homepage.
