Comments on RoboImport

Thank you for voting!
Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

Posting this to explain my No vote. I guess I'm just Old School or anal (or possibly both LOL) but I prefer Photoshop (been using it since 1991) and doing whatever I need done to my photos one by one. I've tried many of these types of programs and they all never do what my own eye will do (or not, depending). I guess if you have a slew of, say, vacation photos that you want to catalog in a hurry, this would be a good solution. I'll pass. Nothing personal against the software it just isn't something I see as useful for me. But, as always, thank you for the free offer! You guys totally rock!! :)

Tried to install the software on win xp 32 bit (sp2). The Setup.exe file was deleting itself before any setup menu comes out and "invalid file or directory" error was called instead. The problem was resolved when I moved the setup file in a different directory than the one, containing Activate.exe and Activate.gcd.
After this small ordeal everything got installed, activated and working fine.

Another excellent and more complete FREE ALTERNATIVE I forgot to mention before is this one:


Besides pictures, it can also easily import VIDEO, raw, panorama and stereo files captured by your digital camera!

Installed upon reboot !! ^_^

Giovanni has posted recently several comments in which he states: "Installed upon reboot !! ^_^"

I sense in it an attempt to make a cheap shot at our true and very liked, and well respected reviewer.

Shame on you, Giovanni.

Giovanni's “Installed upon reboot !! ^_^ ” comment is a sample of his own unique personal style of humor. It is simply fun to me and many others and I like him this way. It is not directed against respected Karl reviewer. I remember Giovanni having the same style long before Karl at the days of Ashraf.
Where is your humor "im"?

This was not a cheap shot by Giovanni. You (the writer) missed the point entirely. What he pointed out is that people will 'dump' on the GAOTD s/w because of Karl's “Installed upon reboot !! ^_^”. Karl simply chooses what 'he' likes or dislikes or what he finds useful or what he does not.

As always I thank GAOTD and all the reviewer comments. They help me make an informed decision about the S/W that is offered and other available S/W out there. Collectively we all benefit.

"Installed upon reboot !!"

@im I agree with nektar. Giovanni's just funning! It's just a play on Karl's signature words. I see no attempt at maliciousness

I have this software since April 2013.
The top of this GOTD page reads
RoboImport downloads your digital images straight from a digital memory card or a digital camera, renames them, and automatically perform’s a number of image editing operations during transferring to your PC.

If you already planned to make those editing operations to your photos, then good.
Otherwise you should not allow any transfer software to automatically "edit" your photos.
Experienced users would have their preferred file manager such as Total Commander.
Transferring photos becomes an insignificant easy task.
Seasoned photographers would have their own preferred system of renaming photos and organising them.

This software is useful for computing & photography novices who are clueless how and where to start transferring and organising their photos.

Sorry to say! I did download the software and try to use it, but didn’t get what this software actually does and how the process goes on.

About RoboImport

With this program the import of media can be handled; better/easier than Windows Explorer.

Open the program and drag some media-files to RobotImport:
You can use a filter on it.
After that choose a destination:
And then the transfer:
There is a report:

Look at the options for more control:
make for every day a different folder . . .
Also this program can monitor a card from the camera: autoplay

Hi Ootje,
Tanks for replying... But I have one doubt, is this tool supports PNG format also?

Not a big fan of this kind of apps, but PHOTO WIZARD can do even more for FREE:


Uninstall upon reboot (I guess that tons of THUMBS DOWN will now flood this site...LOL!)

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system.

A company without name and address. We had had this program version(*) on April 11th, 2013 and December 29th, 2011. Here are the 2013 reviews:

A sleepy company... the latest blog entry is from March 2nd, 2009 http://blog.picajet.com/
The latest news from 04.10.2010. It doesn't seem, that things are moving very fast.

A useful tool, if you don't have AND USE a "downloader" from your camera company, like e.g. Canon's ZoomBrowser or Sony's Play Memories or Nikons...

In the settings you can define every possible file structure for downloading the images, you can add your IPTC data like copyright or collection info, you can backup your imported photos automatically and GPS tag your pictures, if you have a GPS receiver log and if your camera does not automatically store GPS data from en external or built-in receiver.

Of course the program does not only import photos from a camera, you can "import" and sort your exiting pictures to a useful directory structure - if you don't have any and store all your pictures under C:/user/xxx/pictures...

Does what it claims. The benefit is more to give your existing pictures a new folder structure.

I have since years a clear structure and a working catalog solution.

Uninstalled via reboot - I would keep it, if I would need to restructure my picture collection.

The light-weight version of the RoboImport is now the part of the Daminion Photo Manager, that is under active developement since 2008: http://daminion.net

The Free Daminion version allows you to import up to 15'000 files per one local catalog, while you create unlimited local catalogs.

At first I did not give your post much thought since it did not reference today's giveaway. However before leaving the GOTD web site I clicked on the digiKam URL for a look see. First of all, I've been a photographer for over 50 years and 15 years at 100 percent digital... always using MS OS's. Today's giveaway is a very good program for the photo enthusiast or beginner, especially if you do not already have a file/flow process in place and want to get organized. Having said that, I was impressed with what I found on the digiKam web site. Unlike the Daminion Server software, digiKam can support Linux (9 different distro's), FreeBSD, Mac OS-X and Windows.... WOW! Now the only ketch is that there appears to be some bugs with MS Win 8 plus in the latest release:

"Be careful as digiKam is not as stable under Windows as under Linux because of some bugs in the underlying KDE SC libraries that digiKam depends on." from their web site. This is an on-going development with many contributing volunteers (open-source).

For the photography/photo geek in you, do yourself a favor and at least take a look at the feature set and screen shots. I plan to follow there blog for the Win fixes.

Thanks to GOTD and Daminion Server... great work! HAGD, Bob
