I have a large image collection on my full windows 10 tablet.

  • I start with hundreds of images
  • Some of them are taller than wide -> I want them to go in one folder
  • Some of them are wilder than tall -> I want them to go into a different folder

What software would you recommend to accomplish this?

Why I even want to do this:

It's a tablet. Tall pictures are nice to look at in portrait mode for the tablet. It'd be great to separate out the tall pictures.

No coding ability but perhaps if something is very simple, my school allows us to install Matlab for free. Also a commenter below mentioned python.

  • "I don't think sorting just by pixels width will work because the images vary greatly in dimensions/resolution 1" - if you have a requirement other than sort on width >= height, please state it. Once you know what your requirements are, we can try to help you Feb 26, 2019 at 13:27
  • width >= height is my only requirement

  • Then why did you say "I don't think sorting just by pixels width will work"? Without clear requirements, it is difficult for us to help you. I see that you updated your question, which is good, but please bear in mind for future questions, that the clearer the description, the better the answer. Help us to help you :-) I don't suppose you can code? Because this would be very simple in Python Feb 27, 2019 at 7:23
  • Sorting by pixel width will not work. For example, there are wide pictures that happen to have alot of vertical pixels (because they are big overall). Are the requirements clear now? width>= height is all. What else would be useful to help make it clear? Is there a simple script I can run after downloading a program in python? I cannot code.

    As far as those statements not making sense, imagine a 3000 wide by 2000 pixel tall image. It is obviously a wide image, but because it is 2000 pixels tall (which is alot in my folder), if you sort images by pixel height alone, it will have higher vertical pixel number than many images(such as a 500 pixel wide by 1000 pixel tall image, which would obviously be tall). So we can't just sort by # vertical pixels alone. But we could sort by whether width>=tall which is all I'm asking.
