I have a photo library that is structured like this:
Code:

[YYYY]
    [YYYYMMDD]
        img001.jpg
        img002.jpg
        img003.jpg
    [YYYYMMDD]
        img004.jpg
        img005.jpg
    [YYYYMMDD]
        img006.jpg
        img007.jpg
        img008.jpg
        img009.jpg
... etc

When I copy files from the camera I create a folder for each day. I believe many of you sort the photos one way or another. Some store pictures on a monthly basis though.

I am surprised there is no a way to automate the process of copying that TC sorts the files by itself based on the rules specified by some sort of mask.

I am proposing including this feature as a TC command, or as an addon.

What does the community thing about this?

You can copy files to upper folder and then move them (by renaming) to corresponding subdirectories using multi-rename tool (Ctrl+M). You can use any desired name template:
Code:
[Y]\[YMD]\[N]                                        - use file write date (according to camera date)
[=tc.creationdate.Y]\[=tc.creationdate.YMD]\[N]      - use copy to PC date
[=tc.creationdate.Y]\[=tc.creationdate.Y-M-D]\[N]

etc...

Thanks for that. BTW, I have built a small MFC program that does just that. I am going to publish it on Codeproject. If anyone is interested I can post the code
