Can automator be used to sort and file photos based on EXIF data? If so any ideas where I can start.
Which EXIF data did you want to use?
The command-line tool underlying several of Automator's image-processing actions is called 'sips' (Scriptable Image Processing System). See its man page here:
In particular, note the large number of properties one can get from the image. Many of these are encoded as EXIF.
Yep, SIPS may well do the job. If not then you might also want to take a look at exiftool:
Note that both exiftool and SIPS are command line tools so you'd need to use the "Run Shell Script" Automator action (and have at least a basic grasp of the command line, of course!).
