Let us tell you why we believe Elodie is the simplest and most elegant photo organizer you'll ever use.
Elodie places every one of your photos into the exact folder they belong. It's so good at this that it doesn't bother wasting time having less important features.
Elodie frees your photo (and video) library by relying on common standards like your file system and EXIF. Once your photos are organized you won't need to use Elodie again; until you have more photos to organize.
If you use a cloud service for your photos then Elodie can be configured to work with them while retaining all the benefits of organizing your photos using EXIF.
Elodie seamlessly weeds out duplicate photos from your photo collection so you can enjoy a less cluttered library of your memories.
Coming soon. Elodie keeps track of every pixel in every photo and can tell you if even a single pixel gets damanged by normal wear and tear of your hard drives.
Coming soon. You can tell Elodie to organize your photos in any folder structure imaginable using dates, names of cities and states or custom albums. All using EXIF.
Have a question that's not answered below?
|1||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
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..
|2||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.|
|3||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.
|4||How is Elodie compatible with Dropbox, Google Drive and Google Photos?|
Since you can configure Elodie to store your photos anywhere you'd like you can configure it to organize the photos into your Dropbox or Google Drive folder. This means they'll not only be backed up and organized on your laptop but they'll also be organized the same way in your preferred cloud service.
In order to get your photos to also show up in Google Photos you'll need to follow these instructions to have them work together.
|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.|
