Image Importer provides an enhanced import model over the default Photos app. Specifically it adds two features previously available in Windows Essentials Live Gallery - the ability to import files into folders by Date Taken and remove files from the source media when completed. I developed this utility for my personal use but decided to publish it after hearing other’s in the community looking for these features. I’ve tested this with all sorts of removable media as well as DLSR cameras. If you run into issues please drop me a line and I’ll get it fixed for you.
What’s new in this version
126.96.36.199 - Added a Settings button to device selection screen to make changing settings a bit easier on Windows 10. 188.8.131.52 - Increased the maximum number of images imported from 500 to 2,000 184.108.40.206 - Fixed device refresh issues after removing source media - Added more detail to the import progress bar - Cleaned up Device and Import Settiings 220.127.116.11 - Added the ability to select your destination folder - Added more options for organizing the imported photos 18.104.22.168 - Added new setting "Show All Devices" which skips filtering devices based on content. By default we only show devices where we could find images. This feature will skip that filtering. This is needed by some devices that do not store media in a standard way. Known Issues: Do to API limitations, Image Importer does not support MTP at this time. Most cameras support both MTP and PTP (also called Storage mode). Using the later will enable Image Importer to see your media. In some cases you may need to use a stand-alone card reader which does have the benefit of being much faster.
