Smart folder

Smart folder is the option that allows you to organize a system of destination folders based on metadata contained in the photos.

The Smart Folder window allows you to create folders tree with photos based on information contained in EXIF tags. It is possible to set various order of folders. The control window is shown in the figure below.

Smart folder

The window is organized as follows. Each line forms one of subfolders. In the figure above, this line is highlighted in blue. Each line is responsible for a certain EXIF tag. You must activate line (check On button) and set the appropriate level at which folder is to be formed. Level is selected from the drop-down list on the right. If no level is selected, the subfolder is not created. You can turn On or turn Off any levels. Levels can be in any order, but the repetition of levels is not allowed. An exception is the line that forms the subfolders based on EXIF dates. This line can form from 1 to 3 levels of subfolders.This line is highlighted in the figure below, in blue.

Smart folder

The folders of dates - Year, Month and Day always follow in one order: Year-Month-Day. But it is possible to eliminate anyone. If You turn On DateTime, DateTime Original or DateTime Digitized one of the button: Year or Month or Day should be turn On at least.

It is possible to type prefix for each subfolder - it will be added in the beginning of folder name. Dates folders prefix can be added only to a Year folder. If the EXIF tag length exceeds 30 characters, it will be truncated up to 30 characters. If the Whole words only is turned On the whole words will be left only. If EXIF tag contains one word longer than 30 characters, it will be truncated. Sequence of sub-folders can be viewed in the field Example. Each sub-folder level is separated by a backslash.

If the photo does not contain data in the tag, WiseArchivist generates subfolders by special form: Undefined[tag name]. Such folders will always appear, when the appropriate EXIF tag is absent. This folders can be removed if you set option If not empty on the window Find duplicate and others near to appropriate tag.

Some variants of constructing folders tree are shown on the next pictures.
