    Project mention: Usage outside photos database | | 2023-03-04

    It's not currently possible to use osxphotos with photos outside of the nor is this a use case I plan to support. osxphotos is very tightly coupled to However, there are other apps that may help. For example elodie is another command line tool that automatically files photos using a customizable naming scheme. I'm the author of osxphotos and I have a similar app, autofile that, like elodie, can automatically file photos (and other file types) based on a customizable template (using the same template language as osxphotos). Unfortunately autofile currently only runs on MacOS but I am working on a re-write that will allow it to run on Windows and Linux. For your use case I think elodie is probably the best option at the moment.
