    I have 500 images and I want to place them into separate folder per pictures but... is there a way where I can just right click them and it creates a folder specifically for that one picture?

    I cant say that I have ever heard of something like that.

    I suppose the next best way to do it would be to simply create many folders within a empty folder somewhere
    open 2 different explorer windows, one where you can see the images, and one where you can see the folders only
    then simply drag and drop between them, having 2 monitors can make this easier as well

    i am sure it could be easily done with a script, but im not an expert myself. people in "linux" thread might be able to.

    Doubt that exists, but you could open two explorer windows, use the Ctrl + Host + arrows shortcut to move one to the right and one to the left, and make lots of folders with Ctrl + Shift + N. Then you'd still have to copy all files but at least you'd have all those folders. For renaming, see if a batch renaming tool can be used (or just use https://www.windowscentral.com/how-rename-multiple-files-bulk-windows-10). Good luck!

    Yes, more or less, but obviously the renaming is an important part because manually naming 500 folders wouldn't be all that fun.

    Try this one.
    https://www.advancedrenamer.com/

    been using it for years ... quite easy to figure out how it works ..it even shows you the result before you actually commit to do it

    Unless you truly want custom names for every single folder ..in that case your still screwed.

    I've used Auto Hot Key (AHK) to write scripts to do manual tasks. It can take a bit of time to learn how to use, but it is very customisable at could easily do something like this.

    this is a batch file that does thatt in windows.. have your heard of powershell?

    @echo off

    REM to make it moov the file, or copy it remove the "REM" line as appropriate

    SET OPER=echo
    REM SET OPER=copy
    REM SET OPER=move

    REM end of user opts

    FOR %%i IN ("*.jpg") DO ( FOR /F "tokens=1 delims=." %%j IN ("%%i") DO if exist "%%j" ( echo already exist "%%j" ) else (
    echo OK making the directory "%%j"
    mkdir "%%j"
    %OPER% "%%i" "%%j"
    ) )

    echo done press enter

    pause>nul
    EDIT:
    the day would some day be the day that I explained someone where the "F1"-button is--here it is.
    EDIT1:
    version 1.0 has a nice user settings module, user analytics is not yet implemented, but so far no bugs for me to see after testing & Q&A
    EDIT1b:
    user documentation & changelog added. save the quoted text as "start.cmd" in the folder where your image is to start
