Export files of selected tracks into Album folders

This script will export and sort the files of selected tracks into Album-named folders in the Finder. Or, optionally, the files can be exported/sorted to Artist (or Album Artist) folders and Album subfolders. The selected tracks needn't be pre-sorted; the script will use each selected track's tags to construct the folders. Might be handy for SD card users.

For OS X 10.6 or later.

Also see Export Files to Folder and ConvExp to Album Folders.
