Project Description:
• Need a script for Mac OS 10.8.3

• To automate moving image files massed in a folder into the appropriate numbered (4 or 5 digits) folder.

• A tab-separated Text file exists with the name of the image file (excluding a suffix), and then the number of the folder into which the image should go.

• Images and numbered folders are located on an external hard drive.

• The numbered folders are all located in LOCAL/PLANT IMAGES/OPTIMISED/FOLDER NOS

• Image files will be in different folders on the external hard drive.

• Words in the image name (file name and Text list) are separated with a dash (-)

• There may be multiple images to go into the same folder. A solo image has the suffix “main”. Any subsequent images to go into the same folder are numbered sequentially with two digits:
example-image-main.jpg
example-image-01.jpg
example-image-02.jpg

• Some image names have the same root as other images but with an extension. These go into different folders:
IMAGE NAME to go to FOLDER NO.
example-image-main.jpg 7532
example-image-01.jpg 7532
example-image-02.jpg 7532
example-image-variety-main.jpg 13820
example-image-variety-01.jpg 13820
example-image-another-variety-main.jpg 9455
example-image-another-variety-01.jpg 9455
example-image-another-variety-02.jpg 9455
example-image-another-again-main.jpg 12080
example-image-another-again-01.jpg 12080

• Some images will have no folder number yet assigned and should be passed over and left without an error message.
