From Smart Album to physical copy into a new folder in the hard drive




    There is quite a bit wrong with this which would take a while to fix. ChatGPT does some things well, but also makes ghost/sudo code that simply doesn't exist in the model.

    Fortunately, you don't need to script to solve your problem.


    Select and use File>Export>Export Original Files... 

    You will get a dialog asking where to - make sure to include settings. This will make a copy of RAW+ settings in the destination. I guess by adding a shortcut to the Export function it is semi-automated - your script seems to assume a fixed export folder, so once set you should just need to hit the shortcut and then return to commit and Export. 

    You can also drag drop files (select and drag from browser area) and drop into the destination folder in the library tool, holding ⌘ to copy.
