moving phots to another folder

Post by balma01 » Fri Jul 23, 2021 6:10 pm

I'm thinking to move all my pictures fro a structure folder/subfolders to a flat folder.
What wil happen to my media library?
Have I to deactivate it?
Have I to regenerate all the thumbnails?

For performance and usability, I would never recommend dropping all the photos in the same folder, it is infinitely better to have them sorted, for example, by dates / events ... especially if it is a large volume. As a general rule, I never grow a folder with more than 500 photos.

In any case you can do it without any problem, select all the photos, and move them to the root folder you want. Multimedia Console will update the database and if necessary it will remake thumbnails and recognize people in case the AI engines are enabled.

It is rare the day that I am not reordering the collection, adding / moving to one side or the other, there is no problem

Thanks Theliel , I will follow your suggestion leaving the Photos sorted into date folders.
