Note that it is now possible to easily extract all available images from a set of files. To do this for all files in a directory:

exiftool -W %d%f_%t%-c.%s -b -preview:all DIR

This will extract multiple images from each file if they exist.

A single long name, not in any subdirectory?

Ah, I got it.  Remove the trailing semicolon from Exif:DateTimeOriginal.  Adding the trailing semicolon activates the Advanced formatting feature default, which will remove slashes.  Normally it's used to remove unsafe characters from the filename, but since you have an explicit format due to the -d (dateFormat) option, it won't be needed and, as you can see, is actually a hindrance in this case.

I have tried several dup applications. Paid money for them and everything lol. I am left with this. If you can help me clean up the command. Right now it is naming my files like the below output but not moving it to the correct directory.

I believe that the command will fail if the file is missing one of the tags that you are using to rename. 

As for the duplicates, there are programs out there that will look for duplicates based upon the images rather than differences in the file.  Visipics is common mentioned for Windows but there's also Dupeguru which has versions for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Yep, this is Common Mistake #5c.

And don't forget to use +< if you want to avoid overwriting existing keywords.

Figured it out finally.

"-xmp:subject<CreateDate"

or for just the year,

-d %Y "-xmp:subject<CreateDate"


Needed the " around everything and < symbol

And with a little more trial and error I got the Year: 2019 I was looking to achieve with ' around everything:

-d %Y '-xmp:subject+<Year: ${CreateDate}'

Looks like this might be my pattern. In case anyone is following.

exiftool -r -d ~/Pictures/%Y/%m/%d/%Y%m%d_%H%M%S_ '-FileName<${Exif:DateTimeOriginal;}${Model;}_${Imagesize;}_${ShutterSpeed;}_${Aperture;}_${ISO;}%-c.%e' ~/Photos

I was able to get one attribute to work, however if I try to do more than one attribute it doesn't work. I am hoping it is something simple.

This works
exiftool -d ~/Pictures/%Y/%m/%d/%Y%m%d_%H%M%S%%-c.%%e '-FileName<${Exif:DateTimeOriginal}_$ImageSize' ~/Photos
or
exiftool -d ~/Pictures/%Y/%m/%d/%Y%m%d_%H%M%S%%-c.%%e '-FileName<${Exif:DateTimeOriginal}_$Make' ~/Photos

However if I try to combine them it fails
exiftool -d ~/Pictures/%Y/%m/%d/%Y%m%d_%H%M%S%%-c.%%e '-FileName<${Exif:DateTimeOriginal}_$Make_$ImageSize' ~/Photos
