@j to the 4n
Hey buddy, long time. Hope you are keeping well.
1. When using 'move to folder' option, please provide the option to automatically delete the source folder if it becomes empty after running a file operation. For example, I have created a preset that will look for all files with the keyword 'portrait' in their names, and move all files from the source folder to the destination folder. After running this preset, there are several empty folders which then have to be manually removed.
2. Exclude the destination folder from the scanning process if it is a sub-folder within the source folder. Because it is pointless and wastes time and resources.
3. Make 'View Differences only' as the default view when running a batch operation like the one described above. This will reduce clutter on the preview screen.
The scanning process is a bit slow (although not too slow). Can it be made faster? I'm using OnePlus 8T with 12GB/ 256GB, so the device is a really fast one (probably the fastest Android device). I'm also using the latest app version 4.30.1.
I think the reason this is slow is because the app tries to generate preview for all files included in the scanning process, most of which have no effect because they do not satisfy the condition specified for the batch operation. If you default the preview to just those files that will actually be moved from their original location to the destination folder, this process should become much faster, and therefore more efficient. Generating and looking at previews of files unaffected (which are almost always a very large majority of files scanned) by the batch operation is both unnecessary and a waste of resources.
4. Although this isn't exactly related to pictures management, I am still making this feature request due to lack of an app currently for this purpose. This is about file organization. Ability to move files based on their type or extension from a source folder to a destination folder.
For example, the Downloads folder. All images would go to a Pictures folder, all videos into a Videos folder, etc.
Can you add this feature? If you add it, please also provide the option to allow the user to add new file extensions for each category. By that I mean if a new file format comes up for images (or other categories), the user would be able to add this format (file extension) to the built-in template of the relevant category without having to wait for an update, which may or may not include support for that particular format.
About performance, are you saying that preview generation for all files is not what is slowing down the app?Thanks for your feedback, much appreciated.
Will look into your suggestions.
About performance, nothing I can do about that.
About 4. I think that is already possible by using the Keywords filter. just add the extension as filter.
You need to enable "Advanced View" on the same page where you select the source folder.
Then the Keywords/EXIF filter becomes visible.
About performance, are you saying that preview generation for all files is not what is slowing down the app?
As with file organization, I see that only images and videos are processed. That's nice to see. But can you include support for other types of files like documents, apps, etc? If not within this app, but as a separate file organization app would also do. I haven't found an app that can do this basic function in a user friendly manner.

Lovely. Enabling that setting has done the trick.when the "generating preview" message is shown in the progress dialog, files and its metadata is getting read.
That has nothing to do with showing the actual data and images in the dialog at the end. That only takes milliseconds, once all data is read.
About your filetypes, try enabling "support other files" in the settings.
Absolutely. This app is unique in what it does. There is a lot of scope for improvements, bug fixing and polishing. But still unique and gets the job done.
That's bad.So my app got pulled from the playstore because of violation of repetitive content.
Please help me to make some noise and like/reweet:

It isn't available in the custom format - Other EXIF Attributes values? Can you send me such which has that EXIF tag written?Hi,
I've just stumbled across your app and it's so close to what I need I am using the F-Stop Gallery app to manage the photos on my phone meaning I primarily add tags to them. The tags are stored in the "Subject" exif info. Here is a screenshot from the ExifTool:

I would love to be able to move my photos into folders based on the tag. For example all photos tagged as "Animals" will be moved into a folder called "Animals".
Unfortunately it seems the "Subject" Exif is not supported by the app at the moment. Any chance of adding this?
Ah yes sorry just realizing that as well. That's a shame as all gallery apps that allow tagging seem to be using XMP metadata...It isn't available in the custom format - Other EXIF Attributes values? Can you send me such which has that EXIF tag written?
My app only supports tags listed here: https://developer.android.com/reference/android/media/ExifInterface
Edit: ah...it is saving those in the XMP metadata, not EXIF.
Hehe yeah, that's what i tought and that's why i didn't give a 3 start rating but came to this thread.
Sorry if it sounded a bit rude. I just got surprised by the omnipresent buy premium options. Not like i have anything against the FreeBasic/Premium model, and i do think the 1.99$ is a fair price, but if the basic function is too limited from what you expect that leaves a bad aftertast.
BTT. While i completly undestand the usage of DD-MMM-YYYY on paper work it's not usefull in the computer age anymore. Even in a hierarchical folder structure where you have Year/Month/Day most companies use 01 January 02 February 03 March ... for chronological sorting. Simply because having April, August, December .... would be a PITA. And thats why the World Wide Web Consortium recommends the use of ISO8601.
That's why i recommend the addition of this format to the Basic choices
