I want to open this topic because I think there are many people who have many photos and need help to organize them.

In fact, I am a professional photographer who has stored his photos ia an unprofessional way until now.I recently became owner of a mac and started to transfer my pictures on it in an organized manner. The problem is that I have 3 HDDs on about 5,000 pictures made in the last four years.

I would like to organize them according to the date the photos were taken in appropriately named folders (eg 25/05/2010), but taking into account the huge number of images I want to do it automatically. I do not care at all what application might do something like this (iPhoto, Bridge, Automator, Aperture or anything else), all I want is to get rid of the crazy mess of pictures of my HDDs. If you know any way, please let's talk!

I think your best bet is doing that with Automator. A quick Google for Automator and metadata returned this page:

If your images have metadata, this should make it easy to move it into the right folders. Hope this helps.
