A chronological documentation test project, nothing serious, really!

13 Mar 2007 Script to download pictures from camera and rename them etc

Posted by

1. download photos from camera and sort them by date of day in folders
2. remove possible duplicates if I did not erase camera images since last download
3. convert RAW/NEF images to a usable format

All this in one single click!

# Change this to where to store Photos
camera=”USB PTP Class Camera”
date=$(date –iso-8601)
mkdir -p $target/$date/tmp
cd $target/$date/tmp
# Get all photos from camera
gphoto2 –quiet –camera $camera –port usb: -P
# Do not replace photos that were already uploaded this same day
cp -u $target/$date/tmp/* $target/$date
rm -rf $target/$date/tmp
cd $target/$date
# auto-rotate using exif info
exifautotran *.JPG
# If photos were not erased from camera since last upload, remove duplicates
for i in *.{JPG,NEF}; do
for f in $(find $target -name $i ! -samefile $target/$date/$i); do
if md5sum $f | sed -e “s, .*/, ,” | md5sum –check; then
rm -f $i;
# decode RAW images if not already done ?
# for i in *.NEF; do if [ ! -e $(basename $i .NEF).ppm ]; then dcraw -w $i; fi; done
# Show them!
gimv -d $target/$date
