Thanks for the quick reply. If anyone else wants it, it would be a great 
addition to kpa. I don't have the particular coding skills to add it myself.

I'll consider your second alternative. I write a lot of bash scripts and 
that doesn't sound too hard.

I do have some concerns about moving the physical files around so that 
the whole collection wouldn't be in rough date order when I access them 
directly without a photo manager application. But that might not be a 
problem because the low res photos should be in contiguous batches by 
date anyway. I'll see.

Joe
