Hot Folders / Batch Convert + Import and Sort

Post by eph » Tue Jan 30, 2018 10:50 am


Would it be able to combine the Batch Convert and Import and Sort dialogs, in order to also have Hot folders for the latter?
The Batch Convert allows for all necessary option from which Import and Sort would also benefit:

* Hot folders
* Keep original date/time attributes
* Replace/Skip/Rename/Ask actions if file exists
* Delete original
* Actions after conversion (or import)

Basically the only addition needed here is to output (copy) the original image, without any intermediary actions (apart from EXIF rotate or XMP keywords).

Then it would be great to add specific Batch scripts to specific Hot folders, especially for importing (synchronised hot folder).

Thanks for a great program, and hopefully taking these suggestions into consideration..!
