Frequent and Common Questions

1 How does Elodie work with Dropbox and Google Photos?

Elodie takes all of the photos from a source folder and neatly organize them into a target folder. The first time you use Elodie you can put all of your photos in your source folder and Elodie will organize them. From then on you can add newly taken photos to your source folder and let Elodie keep your target library pristine and up-to-date.

We're working on adding support for Google Photos as well. You'll continue to use Dropbox as your primary source of photos but a copy of each photo can be automatically added to a Google Photos account for those who prefer to use Google Photos for viewing or sharing.

2 How does Elodie determine what folder a photo should be placed?

Elodie looks at each photo's EXIF data and applies a series of rules to determine which folder it should be placed. The default folder structure is YYYY-MM/City Name. Additionally, Elodie will use the EXIF to create a standardized file name for every photo across your entire library.

What this means is that all of your folders will be naturally sorted in every file browser by earliest to latest and so will your photos. It seems trivial but once you have tens of thousands of photos organized this way you'll be really happy.

3 What if some of my photos don't have EXIF?
Elodie uses sane defaults and will fall back to non-EXIF information to make the best possible decision to place the photo in an appropriate folder.
4 Can I change or add EXIF information after Elodie has already organized a photo into a folder?

Coming soon. Elodie makes it easy to modify the EXIF of a photo including adding EXIF which did not previously exist. The photo will then be automatically reorganized and placed into the proper folder based on its new EXIF.

This is especially useful because it becomes easy to perform some very common tasks.

  • Add dates to scanned photos.
  • Add location to dSLR photos.
  • Shift the time on photos which were taken in another time zone while on vacation.
5 What if I don't like the default folder structure and file name which Elodie uses?
Coming soon. While we've spent a lot of time coming up with the defaults and believe they're extremely useful you may have your own structure you'd like to use. You can customize the folder structure using a variety of metadata contained in your photos' EXIF including date, location, camera make & model, album, title, etc.
