in reply to Fetch image attributes

I use Image::ExifTool extensively. It allows convenient access to the date/time when a photo was taken (according to the camera clock).

I also wrote my own photo importer, that sorts photos into buckets according to their timestamp. Gaps of four hours between photos indicate a new "event" (= directory) to the program. That program is quite rough, so I haven't put it online yet. Also, it is relatively trivial to implement.

      Thank you for prodding me. I've just published the code on Github at

      I noticed that in the app, there are some hardcoded Windows-oriented defaults. Especially, the drive letters for removable media are hardcoded. Patches would be welcome to make this more DWIMish, on Windows but also on other operating systems.
