I am trying to consolidate all my photos under one Shotwell directory. Some of my photos were copied into that folder and some where not when I imported them (some were imported in place and that is not what I want). I have written some Python code to access the Shotwell database to help me find the files not in the correct folder.
As I understand from point 2 in How can I move my photo files from one directory or hard-drive to another? I should be able to move them, have them show up as missing, and then re-import them from the new folder. When I try and re-import them, I am told that the duplicates will not be imported and the files stay in the missing file area.
What am I doing wrong here?
