I have a weird bug I'm experiencing. I have a folder of images that Hazel doesn't recognize as images. These are located in a folder that I have set to be monitored by Hazel using a script made with
exiftool that will organize the photos into folders by year/month/day. The
exiftool script follows and works for "normal" images.
exiftool "-Directory<DateTimeOriginal" -d %Y/%m/%d%%-c "/Volumes/VolumeName/Photos"
exiftool doesn't recognize these photos as well, even if I run the script from the command line. What's even more frustrating is that the workflow will work for some photos and not for others.
Finder recognizes these trouble files as photos when I do a Spotlight search using the terms
Hazel does not treat the trouble files as images. I know this because I can set a rule to move all files but images to a different folder and those troublesome files will be moved.
It doesn't appear to be a permissions issue
It doesn't seem to have anything to do with the format of the photo (jpg, jpeg, JPG, png, NEF)
In short, both Hazel and the
exiftool script work but not for certain photos I have (and thousands of them at that!)
Do you have any idea what's going on and why these photos aren't being properly recognized as such?
How do Hazel and
exiftooldiffer from Finder in their determination of whether or not a file is an image?
