I support this request
This is useful to distribute photos whose names are dates into yearly folders ... (or months or days )

replace ^([0-9]{4}) with $1\
This will move files into annual folders


I know i can also use import and sort ... but photos that have been sent with WhatsApp or similar apps, or through MMS have lost their exif dates.
