  • Drag & Drop works with native file systems
  • Group Actions:
  • Rename camera files with thier date and time
  • Checkmark Downloads from cameras are typically named something like P00001.jpg This will rename the file to something like 2003.12.27-18.09.16.jpg giving the exact date and time the picture was taken, formatted to sort correctly in file listings. Works by reading the time and date information recorded when the picture was taken.
  • Dedup pictures within a directory or across directories
  • Rename a group of files by appending a unique designator
  • Checkmark Especially useful for internet downloads where the downloads can have the same names (for example 001.jpg). JIBS will generate a new unique name like 001zxy00001.jpg. The next 001.jpg you download would be renamed with a different number like 001zxy00045.jpg. So now when you drag and drop there won't be name clashes.

What's New in This Release:
  • For file choosers which open with a default directory, if the default directory is not there, the next higher directory is used. Will not return the root directory. This allows the underlying file chooser to default to the user's home directory in case of root.
  • Added a hash check sum checker because I could not easily find one and I hate looking. FireFox plug-in is in test status and I didn't feel like registering.
  • If you rename JibsTree.jibs and associate that file ending with JIBS, then double-clicking on JibsTree.jibs will bring up Jibs with that directory list loaded. When you close JIBS, directory list will be written back to JibsTree.jibs. Not sure if I want to change JibsTree.txt to JibsTree.jibs since I don't have a loader to register the ending so what's the point?
  • Fixed an annoyance where the entire contents of JibTree.txt was written to the console on startup.
