Documentation

photofs

photofs is an application that allows you to mount the tags in the photo database from Shotwell as directories in a virtual file system.

Usage

To add directories for all tags under $PHOTOFS_PATH, run the following command:

photofs $PHOTOFS_PATH

After this, $PHOTOFS_PATH/Photos will contain directories for all photo tags, and $PHOTOFS_PATH/Videos will contain directories for all video tags.

Run photofs --help for a list of all command line arguments.

How do I change the names of photos and videos?

photofs will use the title of an image as file name. If the image does not have a title, the exposure time will be used. If more than one image is shot at the same time, the file names will be made unique by appending (1), (2) etc. to the file name.

Run photofs --help to see how to change the time format used.
