I have a large "myfiles"directory full of miscellanous documents and do not want to modify its structure.
I therefore created (several) other directories for each class of documents. For example I have an "images" directory which has symlinks to each jpg or cr2 file in the "myfiles" directory plus other descriptive files for each symlink (with the same filename) with description and other metadata. The symlinks in the /images directory might have a different name from the original linked file.
I am trying to find the simplest way to make sure each and every image file in the "myfiles" directory has a symlink into the "images" directory.
See an example of the folder structure
/myfiles/a.doc /myfiles/b.jpg /myfiles/c.cr2 /myfiles/d.mov
/images/b_800x600.jpg /images/b_800x600.desc /images/c_3820x5640.cr2 /images/c_3820x5640.cr2
