In order to not run out of space on my Android, I often move all pictures to my desktop computer, via USB. I do it almost everyday, as I also fear losing my pictures if I drop my phone.
Problem: It takes a lot of time, because various Android apps put their pictures in various folders (stock camera app, favorite camera app, HDR camera app, Foodie camera app, plus all messaging apps that store received pictures in their own folder, sometimes even separating between photos and videos).
So, I am looking for a tool that would move all pictures from all of these folders.
- Runs on recent Linux
- Compatible with Android 7+
- Command-line, it should do the transfers without asking or showing any UI, or at most a desktop notification after transfer is done
- Open source and gratis
- Due to a limited data plan, Internet transfer is not an option, it must be via USB. I connect via USB everyday to charge the device so it does not bother me.
It could allow me to configure the paths I want pictures to be moved from, or it could download from the usual folders where well-known apps put their pictures.
