Import Photo Folders

Import a directory hierarchy as albums into OS X Photos (El Capitan).

Just download ImportPhotoFolders.applescript, open it in Script Editor and execute it from there. You will be asked to select the directories to import.

Example

Given the following directory structure:

  • Pictures/
    • Mountains/
      • Asia/
        • everest.jpg
        • k2.jpg
      • Europe/
        • matterhorn.jpg
    • People/
      • i.jpg
      • mejenny.jpg
    • whatever.jpg

When selecting the Pictures directory to import, the following structure will be generated in Photos:

  • Pictures/ (folder)
    • Mountains/ (folder)
      • Asia (album)
        • everest.jpg
        • k2.jpg
      • Europe (album)
        • matterhorn.jpg
    • People (album)
      • i.jpg
      • mejenny.jpg
    • Pictures (album)
      • whatever.jpg
