AuthorSubject: A useful Workflow script   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Richard Earney
Posted on Wed Feb 25, 2004 1:59 PM

On the way back from the UK Focus on Imaging show, some colleagues and I were talking about smoother workflow and it set me thinking about scripting the getting of images onto the computer.

This is for MacOS X and has been thought of in terms of workflow using a Canon D-SLR, but I'm sure can be amended for other makes of camera.

I mount my Microdrives using a Firewire Card Reader. I copy the .CRW and .JPG files created by my D60 to a "Digital Images" Folder on one of my Volumes. The new folder should ideally have the day's date.

Before the conversation had taken place I had used the Finder's Find command to find all .CRW files then copied then Cmd+C and opened a Finder window in Digital Images created a folder with the day's date and pasted them in. I would repeat this for any .JPG files I might have.
I tried scripting this with AppleScript but it didn't seem to understand the Find process when I began to record it. So instead I went down the UNIX path.

This short script is what follows:

mkdir /Volumes/HardDisk/Digital\ Images/`date +"%d.%m.%y"`
find /Volumes/EOS_DIGITAL -type f -name "*.CRW" -exec cp {} /Volumes/HardDisk/Digital\ Images/`date +"%d.%m.%y"` \;
find /Volumes/EOS_DIGITAL -type f -name "*.JPG" -exec cp {} /Volumes/HardDisk/Digital\ Images/`date +"%d.%m.%y"` \;

What this does is Make a folder in my Digital Images folder called 25.02.04 (for the US you may want to amend the order).
The next step is to find all files on the Compact Flash (called EOS_DIGITAL) containing .CRW and copy them to the newly created folder. Then it repeats it for .JPG files. This can be amended for use with Nikons, Sigma etc.

Save this script as a text file called (for example) copyimages.sh onto your Desktop (The .sh makes it a shell script). Then using the Terminal application type the following:

cd ~/Desktop
chmod 755 copyimages.sh

This makes the shell script executable.

Then load in your Microdrive. Drag the script to an open Terminal window and press Return to make it run. It will then copy the files using the Terminal (which should have less overhead than a normal copy).

Hope this is of use

kind regards

Richard Earney
