I shoot a lot of photos at airshows and needed a quick to sort the RAW photos from the JPGs and to put them into different directories. I may not always use the RAW photos, but I don’t want to discard, I also may not want them in my Lightroom library. This program will quickly sort them, name them, and put them into separate directories for import into Lightroom.
The programs repository is here: https://github.com/undrwatr/SONY_FILE_SORT
This is of course version 1:
#!/usr/bin/env python3 #Program to sort my photo files between Sony RAW and JPG files. Sorts into two separete directores so I can chooose what to import into Lightroom. import os import shutil # ask for the name of the directory SORT_DIR = os.getcwd() DIRECTORY = input("What is the name of the Directory to be created? ") DIRECTORY_RAW = (DIRECTORY + '_RAW') DIRECTORY_JPG = (DIRECTORY + '_JPG') # List the files in the source directory list_ = os.listdir(SORT_DIR) # rename the files based on the requested directory name INCR = 0 for file_ in list_: name, ext = os.path.splitext(file_) INCR = INCR +1 os.rename(file_, ((DIRECTORY) + "-" + str(INCR) + ext)) # create a directory for jpg # create a directory for raw files os.mkdir(DIRECTORY_RAW) os.mkdir(DIRECTORY_JPG) CURRENT_DIR = os.getcwd() list1_ = os.listdir(SORT_DIR) # Sort the photos into the directories, but do not sort the directory for file1_ in list1_: if file1_.endswith('.ARW'): shutil.move(((CURRENT_DIR) + "/" + (file1_)), ((CURRENT_DIR) + "/" + (DIRECTORY_RAW))) if file1_.endswith('.JPG'): shutil.move(((CURRENT_DIR) + "/" + (file1_)), ((CURRENT_DIR) + "/" + (DIRECTORY_JPG))) else: continue
