Utility (Powershell) to download camera images

Edit My Images

I just wanted to share a little project I've been working on when time allows.

I used to use the canon software to download images from my cameras, but it was slow and increasingly problematic, and I don't really like lightroom doing it - I'm too much of a control freak for that.

So, I've written a little Powershell script to do everything I need. To download my images I just plug my CF card into a reader and execute one command. By default the script downloads new files only (marking them as downloaded on the removable media) to my Pictures folder, places the pictures into a sub folder based on the date, with an optional suffix for reference. It creates an 'Export' folder in each one for LR purposes, and finally ejects the removable media safely once it's complete.

If it's of any use to anyone, I've stuck it in a github repo: https://github.com/iainfm/Copy-CameraPhotos

Best wishes,
