Media Event Organizer is a cool freeware program which segments large folders of your photos into date specific ‘events’. So far so normal. Where the program differs from conventional date splitting alternatives is in the interface, which has some nice touches, and in the fact that you get much more fine grained control over the eventual sorting process.
The program actually works in a two stage process. It first segments the images into different user customisable date patterns, and then, once you’re happy with the results, you can click the Organize button and have the software automatically shuffle (i.e. move or copy) the files around to create a nicely catalogued set of pics on your hard disk.
This is the kind of program which could revolutionise your life if you’re a heavyweight amateur snapper, and it’s more evidence of the current trend towards the curation of data that we’re seeing nowadays. As our capacity to store stuff grows, so too does our need to control it in some way, to make it actually useful. Expect to see many more programs like this in the coming months. For now, this is a great little tool, and well worth checking out. Windows only.
Instead of the images being in one big folder, Media Event Organizer will automatically arrange them for you into two events — one for the first weekend and the second for the second weekend. And it will automatically put them in two separate folders on your computer automatically. It does this by recognizing the gap between the two events, the time duration of which is configurable. Besides, the pictures can be anywhere on your system. Media Event Organizer will find, sort through the list and place them into structured folders.
