DESCRIPTION
       Rapid Photo Downloader imports photos and videos	from cameras, phones,
       memory cards and	other devices at high speed. It	can be configured to
       rename photos and videos	with meaningful	filenames you specify. It can
       also back up photos and videos as they are downloaded. It downloads
       from and	backs up to multiple devices simultaneously.

       Unique to Rapid Photo Downloader	is its Timeline, which groups photos
       and videos based	on how much time elapsed between consecutive shots.
       Use it to identify photos and videos taken at different periods in a
       single day or over consecutive days.

       Files are downloaded from two different types of	sources: (1) one or
       more automatically detected devices like	cameras, phones, memory	cards,
       and external drives; and	(2) a single manually specified	path, shown in
       the user	interface as "This Computer".

PATH
       Optional	value that when	specified, is parsed to	determine if it
       represents an automatically detected device or a	path on	this computer.

       If the path represents an automatically detected	device,	automatic
       detection of devices is turned on, as in	the --auto-detect option.
       Furthermore, downloading	from a manually	specified path as in the
       --this-computer-location	option is turned off.

       Otherwise, the path is assumed to be a manually specified path as in
       the --this-computer-location option, in which case downloading from
       this computer is	turned on and downloading from automatically detected
       devices is turned off.

OPTIONS
       -h, --help
	   Show	help message and exit.

       --version
	   Displays information	about the currently installed version and
	   exits.

       --detailed-version
	   Displays information	about the currently installed version and its
	   libraries and exits.

       -v, --verbose
	   Displays program information	on the command line as the program
	   runs.

       --debug
	   Displays debugging information on the command line as the program
	   runs

       -e, --extensions
	   Displays image file extensions the program recognizes and exits.

       --photo-renaming	{on,off}
	   Turn	on or off the the renaming of photos while downloading,
	   overwriting existing	program	preferences. If	turned on, the
	   renaming scheme used	will incorporate the photo's metadata date,
	   time, the number of downloads today,	and the	file extension in
	   lower case: "YYYYMMDD-HHMM-<DownloadsToday>.<LowercaseExtension>",
	   e.g.	20160512-1309-23.jpg.

       --video-renaming	{on,off}
	   Turn	on or off the the renaming of videos while downloading,
	   overwriting existing	program	preferences. If	turned on, the
	   renaming scheme used	will incorporate the video's metadata date,
	   time, the number of downloads today,	and the	file extension in
	   lower case: "YYYYMMDD-HHMM-<DownloadsToday>.<LowercaseExtension>",
	   e.g.	20160512-1429-26.mp4.

       -b {on,off}, --backup {on,off}
	   Turns on or off the backing up of photos and	videos while
	   downloading,	overwriting existing program preferences.

	   it with this	name. Overwrites existing program preferences.

       --video-backup-identifier FOLDER
	   Sets	the FOLDER in which backups are	stored on the automatically
	   detected video backup device, with the folder's name	being used to
	   identify whether or not the device is used for backups. For each
	   device you wish to use for backing up videos	to, create a folder on
	   it with this	name. Overwrites existing program preferences.

       --photo-backup-location PATH
	   Sets	the PATH where photos will be backed up	when automatic
	   detection of	backup devices is turned off. Overwrites existing
	   program preferences.

       --video-backup-location PATH

	   detection of	backup devices is turned off. Overwrites existing

	   Print information to	the terminal about attached cameras and	exit.

ENVIRONMENT
       If the environment variable RPD_SCAN_DEBUG is set to any	value, the
