Install phockup, Linux photo organizer. Phockup is a media sorting and backup tool to organize photos and videos from your camera in folders by year, month and day. This can also help you to find duplicate photos on Linux Ubuntu.
Phockup is a media sorting and backup tool to organize photos and videos from your camera in folders by year, month and day. The software will collect all files from the input directory and copy them to the output directory without changing the files content. It will only rename the files and place them in the proper directory for year, month and day.
All files which are not images or videos or those which do not have creation date information will be placed in a directory called unknown without file name change. By doing this you can be sure that the input directory can be safely deleted after the successful process completion because all files from the input directory have a copy in the output directory.
Installing phockup on Linux Ubuntu needs snapd. To install, run the command:
sudo snap install phockup
Organize photos from one directory into another
phockup INPUTDIR OUTPUTDIR
INPUTDIR is the directory where your photos are located.
OUTPUTDIR is the directory where your sorted photos will be stored. It could be a new not existing directory.
phockup ~/Pictures/camera ~/Pictures/sorted
