Ever consider possibility of automatically making subfolders?

I think an easy way to do it would be something like File output saving to C:\Yawcam\{WeekDay}\Pic{x}.jpg

the only problem I have now is that you can't set a variable as a folder...

Just to clarify things...
It is possible to create folders containing variables for file output.
For example you can use a path like this:

There is however no variable for the weekday.
There is also not possible to use variables in folder names for ftp output.

Good day -

First, thanks for creating Yawcam - I've been using it for a year now for my truck-mobile webcam and it does everything I need it to do!

Second, thanks for the neat feature to allow Yamcam to make new subfolders based upon date. I finally discovered this only yesterday, and before then had hundreds of thousands of files all dumped into the same directory. This is much cleaner. Wish I had looked a year ago!

Cheers - Jon N7UV
