I have about 5000 image files and I need to process them with a Photoshop CS5 action. The action only allow me to process 3 files at the time located in the same folder. Therefore I need to create about 1666 folders by hand and this is rather long.
My 5000+ files are all in one folder.
each file name has a delimiter example: (NewYork)_
plus a number from 0001 to 0300
The file name is NewYork_001
I would like:
Sort the file by name in the original folder
Create a folder using the Name of the first filename (example) NewYork_ PLUS a number as 001
The newly created folder name should be like: NewYork_001
move the first 3 files into the newly created folder and continue creating (eaxample NewYork_002) and moving the next 3 files in it.
As the file name might change to something else (example Berlin24_001
The new foilder name should be Berlin24_001 until the first file name left in the original folder is Berlin24_
At the end I hope to find in my original folder a series of folders named according to the files name containing with 3 images with their original names.
This because I cannot loose the file names for my subsequent work.
Is this possible?
