For years I have been importing photos from my Canon with EOS Utility in the yyyy/mm/dd format.  I have successlully imported this whole file structure into Aperture....using Import<files as folders.

But I cannot get Aperture to import into this file structure from my camera automatically. How do I set this up? It seems ridiculously complicated to me.

Surely I am not the first person in the world to want to organize photos by date shot?????

    Do you mean "Import > Folders as projects"?

     

    You cannot do it with the basic "Import" settings, but you could add an Apple Script at import. Frank Caggiano's script might do exactly what you want, see: Re: Importing into projects in Aperture: Date format?

     

    Frank, how about turning these scripts into a User Tip, please?
