The File Utilities plug-in was updated:

  • An "EXIF Date Taken" condition has been added. It is now possible to condition a rule execution on the date/time the pictures were taken, e.g. "where the image was taken before 01 Jan, 2010 then..."
  • A "File Size" condition has been added. It is now possible to condition a rule execution on the disk file size, e.g. "where the file size if greater than 5 MB then...".
  • A "File Date" condition has been added. It is now possible to condition a rule execution on the file creation date, or the last modification or access dates.
  • It is now possible to insert substitution variables within the destination paths for the Copy, Move and Save for Web actions. An example of substitution variable is the {Rating} variable, which contains the current file's XMP rating. By setting, for example, the destination folder for the Copy action to ".\Rated\{Rating}-Stars" the batch utility plugin will copy 1-star rated images to ".\Rated\1-Stars", 2-stars rated to ".\Rated\2-Stars" etc, greatly enhancing the rule's expressive power. There are dozens of available variables, ranging from file info (size, dates) to image info (dimensions, EXIF data) etc. As another example of the power of substitution variables, a copy (or move, or save for web) destination folder like "C:\ByDate\{DateTaken:Year}\{DateTaken:Month}" will dispatch matching pictures according to the EXIF date to a \Year\Month folder tree automatically. There is a variable for the day of month too, and day of year, and week of year, hour, minute and second, aperture, focal length and much more, so there are a lot of possibilities... Right-click the destination path and click "Insert Substitution Variable" on the edit box's context menu.
  • Since build 136 the File Utilities plug-in is multi-core aware and takes advantage of multiple processors to speed up overall throughput.
  • Several small and not so small bugs were fixed, notably an issue where unrated files were considered as rated by mistake.
Don't miss the Using the File Utilities Plug-in section of the online help page for a short tutorial.

The new version is available now from the download page.
