Use a script language from your OS (DOS, PowerShell, VBS)

MOVE "1. jpg" "folder 1"
MOVE "2. jpg" "folder 2"
MOVE "3. jpg" "folder 3"
etc.

For example "MS-DOS" batch

Create a plain text TXT-file and add code like:

Code: Select all

@ECHO OFF
MOVE "1. jpg" "folder 1"
MOVE "2. jpg" "folder 2"
MOVE "3. jpg" "folder 3"
REM etc.
PAUSE
Open cmd.exe, type MOVE /? and read help.

Save that TXT-file with CMD extension and run.
