Project Description

I recently had to restore my image files from an external drive using Data Rescue. The files were saved to my hard drive without the original director structure and I need to reorganize them into a directory structure that makes sense.

The existing structure is as follows:
Recovered Files Folder
JPEG Folder
JPEG1 Folder
JPEG 2 Folder
BMP Folder
TIFF Folder
TIFF1 Folder

There are hunders of files inside each folder. I am mostly interested in retrieving the files with extensions jpgs, cr2, and psd. I would like the files to be organized based on the creation date in the following format:

Year
Date file created
-so-
2012
20120105
20120110
20120120
...
20120513
20120519
...
2013
20130102

Etc...

I don't care how you create the script or if you use automation from the Mac OS or a script with Photoshop, Bridge or other Creative Suite tools.

I am running Mac OS 10.8.2 and CS6. I am hoping to hire and finish the project ASAP.
