"importing" existing directory structure

so i have a big directory structure with all my old sorted photos can i somehow let RPD “import” those into its directory structure?

No. To configure Rapid Photo Downloader to automatically create download subfolders as it downloads, you can use one of Rapid Photo Downloader’s built-in presets, or create a custom preset.

I read darix question differently. @darix do you want to clean up your photo collection by moving/copying existing photographs so that they follow your rpd preset structure?

exactly that.

  • Does the program recognize XMP sidecar files?
  • How can I copy files other than photos or videos?
  • Sometimes my photos have no metadata (EXIF or IPTC tags). What happens then?
