DateTree will copy files into a set of folders named by date. Although the program was written with images in mind, it will handle any file. Selective copying is possible, and several date-based organizations are offered.
DateTree understands the dates which many digital cameras embed into digital photo files. If the embedded date is not available, or for non-image files, DateTree uses the modification date of the file to determine which date folder it should be placed into.
DateTree's copy is much faster than the processing-intensive import in iPhoto and other image processing programs. It's perfect for those who prefer not to use a complex photo manager, and only lack a tool to organize their images in the file system.
