Photoshop Elements: Photo Downloader on OS X uses wrong [shot date] for JPEG files

I'm downloading photos&videos from a Canon Powershot into Photoshop Elements Organizer 10 on OS X. I want the files to be copied into subfolders named after the [shot date], which worked fine when I used PSE8 on Windows.

With PSE10 on OS X the subfolder names seem to be somewhat random for JPEG files: "1913 03 15", "1969 12 31", "1970 02 03", "1970 02 09", "1975 10 04", ... "2026 01 17". The AVI files are all correctly stored in a subfolder named "2011 11 05".

Interestingly, the dates displayed for each photo in the organizer is correct, it is just the subfolder name that is not created correctly.

That URL and the links contained within all seem to work for me. Are you still having trouble?

Hallo,
by importing my photos from SD-card, I choose to create a new folder (JJJJ MM TT) (German) and I become a folder JJJJ TT MM, you see the difference?
Futher I think it would be better if I can create my own nomenclature, without blanks, with wildecards, etc
Greetings from Germany

I have a big problem:
In the German version of Photoshop Elements 10 is a fatal bug, when importing pictures from a camera or SD-Card with autocreation of directories the naming of these are wrong. If you have pictures of the seventh of May 2012 it should be "2012 05 07" but its "2012 07 05" an the eight of May is "2012 08 05".
You can see that this makes the sorting of images really impossible.

i would be very pleased when the next update could solve this serious problem.

I need the following date format to be supported in APD: yyyy.mm.dd
This is due to sorting in the folders. Only yyyy.dd.mm is supported...

When images are loaded from camera PSE should create folder YYYY MM DD but creates YYYY DD MM mixing up the whole collection. OS is Windows 7 german.
Elements Organizer 10.0.0.0 Core-Version: 10.0 (20110831.m.17215) Sprachversion: 10.0 (20110831.m.17215)

I am using PSE 11 and the downloader no longer has choice of shoot date YYYY MM DD. Only YYYY MM DD are supported.

Anyone with a solution?

Go to Organizer preferences and select date format DDMM , now photodownloader will start showing DD MM date format except the first two options Todays date and shot date , they remain fixed to MMDD.

Jan, no options have changed with how to name things in PSE11 from previous versions.

PSE11:


PSE10:

This is incredible. Surely after the fuss we made about this bug in version 10 they haven't made the same mistake again.

The bug was fixed, where the day and month were being reversed. So imports should correctly be importing as YYYY MM DD: Year, Month Day. This is as it is supposed to work.

David, are you hoping that YYYY DD MM (Year Day Month) would be added? If so, that would seem (to me at least) to be counter-intuitive for organization.

Not sure why this isn't working, but we're investigating. You can still download the update offered in this document by using this link: https://help-internal.adobe.com/conte...

That link is not working for me either. I get an error message.

Yeah, an internal Adobe URL isn't going to help anyone outside the Adobe network...

Oops, you're right. The document uses a relative link, so the internal version of the doc (which is working, curiously enough) gives an internal link to the file. Just have to modify it slightly to get the correct external link:
