When it comes to dowloading photos from a storage card and organizing them in the process, Rapid Photo Downloader is just the ticket. But if you prefer to do that from the command line, here is a simple Bash script cobbled together by yours truly.
I'm looking for advise, thoughts or suggestions. I have a Ubuntu server that I use mostly as a file server. I have thousands of photos and a good number of videos on the server. I want to organize, and share my photos/videos with friends and family.
I had about 20 photos stored on Flickr for some time.
I'm working on organizing my photos and decided to move my Flickr photos to my phone.
I was able to download them but now when I open one of the photos in Gallery I immediately get an ad displayed. Press enter and view my photo. Exit that photo and a second ad is displayed.
Sure you can retrieve your photos but....
I want to write a small script that will check each photo in my Dropbox directory and copy it to my hard drive only if it is a new photo but I don't know what tools to use to do it.
I need something that would do the opposite of fdupes and check if any photos in ~/Dropbox/shared_photos do NOT already exist in ~/Pictures and copy them over if needed.
A number of tech companies over the years have attempted to solve the challenges around organizing our ever-growing photo collections. Some offer better tools at curating or sharing photos with friends, while others have focused more on the storage aspects.
