My fork of @cliss’s photo management script. Tweaked to: * Get date from `os.path.getmtime(f)` (lifted from @jdmonaco’s fork) * Sort any format with a three-character extension (currently .JPG, .TIF, .PNG and .MOV). Edit the list in line 40 for more formats. It also normalises extensions to lowercase. * Tweaked some bits of the code * Moves file…
