Mac OS X CF Import Script
Just written a shell script to automate my CF importing workflow. To run it, one can use a simple AppleScript to call the script from the desktop.
So what does the script? When run, it will first do a normal CF exist check, next it will create the respective folders (if not already existed), and then it will copy the contents of CF to their appropriate folders.
If you are interested, the script is here. (see it for more info)
It will be a donation ware. So do kindly donate something if you find it useful... ^^

Is there a reason why manual scripting is preferred over using iPhoto?

Yes, if you have your own filing system and dislike the one (and filing system used) by iPhoto.

I guess its a personal preference. iPhoto makes it convenient to manage the photos, but its probably not meant for archival management. You still drag photos into CD-Rs when you need to archive them.

Well for me, it's much easier to do it in the familiar bourne shell script, anyway will be releasing a GUI version later.
