Maybe somebody could direct me to a proper newsgroup if this isn't it.



When I download pictures from my digital camera, it stores them all in one

folder. Is there a way that I could download them into folders that it

created by picture-taken date?

Nothing in the operating system. I know Canon has some software that

does this (I don't remember the name, somethingorotherEX).

*****************************************************************

What is the Make and Modal of the camera ?

What is the name of the "downloading" program ?

What is the name of the program you view them in ?

What is the name and location of the folder they go to now ?

Windows Live Photo Gallery has an import option to set 'Folder Name' to

'Date' and 'Date range' though I have never used it to import pictures

spanning multiple dates.

Use the standard Windows Scanner and Fax utility. The options will allow

you to specify a Tag. The Tag can be any description you want to enter.

The folder name will be the date of the import plus the tag. The

picture/file names within that folder will be the Tag plus a unique

sequential number. The resultant folders and file names are similar to what

we're used to in XP. I load pictures on both my XP and Vista computers and

achieve the results you're asking for on both operating systems. Post back

if you have any problems.
