An Introduction to Directory Opus 13 for Photo Organizers

Directory Opus 13 is a highly customizable file manager that offers so much more than Windows File Explorer.

The Megabyte Method relies on Directory Opus 13 and includes a configuration file for Directory Opus 13. That configuration file includes an ExifTool plugin and over 60 customizations for specific photo and video organizing tasks.
