Analyzes the image files present in a folder and group them into "events"
 
1.0.0.19 (See all)

Media Event Organizer is a software tool that analyzes all the image files present on a specific folder and group them into "events", based on their creation date. It assumes that all the pictures you have taken on the same day or group of days belong to the same event, and then it classifies them accordingly regardless of the number of pictures present in the folder.

With a compact, pleasant and easy to use interface, Media Event Organizer makes picture organizing a really easy task. It allows you to select the folder you want to organize, and proceeds to scan it analyzing the existing pictures and their creation dates. A very important detail that needs mentioning is that it is capable of scanning through any existing subfolders. All the pictures found are displayed in the big panel provided, already grouped by date and in a hierarchical way. Here you can manually set the names for every event, and even for every individual picture. There is also an "event gap" control that allows you to define how many days will be considered to form one single event, and to choose whether the pictures must be organized by year and/or month.

There is another big panel where you can see thumbnails of the pictures that belong to the selected event, allowing you to establish your preferred zoom level. Besides that, you are provided with buttons that let you revert any of the applied changes, save the event structure you have created for the current folder (so that you do not have to re-scan it and type the event and picture names again in the future), and proceed to fully organize your pictures.

The organization process opens another window, where you can define all the remaining details, such as the destination folder where the organized structure will be stored, the possibility to move or just copy your source pictures, to use the date selected as a timestamp, and even to ignore duplicate source pictures.

This program requires downloading and installing Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1. Luckily, this is an automatic process that takes place during the program's installation. Media Event Organizer is an excellent tool that will save you a lot of time when organizing your entire picture collection. Best of all, it is free.
