    I've got around 2k jpg files in one folder.
    Can i use automator to sort them and put in new folders?
    I need automator to take info from the file, create new folder (date), and move file to new folder.
    So at the end i will have all files in new folders - folder for each day.
    Is that possible wit automator?

    It might be easier to make Smart Folders with different parameters that automatically update to keep certain files together. :)

    i think its the same with smart folders and an automator script. You will have to create a new smart folder for each day and you will have to run the automator script once for each day (while creating a new date folder and adjusting the automator script for the next day).

    The automator script would be something like this
    Finder finder items (your current folder)
    Date created/modified xx.xx.xxxx
    move finder items to (your newly created matching date folder)
