I started using Lightroom years ago on Version 1 or 2, and back then, I told it to import my photos into a folder, and put the photos into a folder for each day (for example 2006-01-07, etc.).
It has now gotten to a stage where I have a LOT of folders with photos set out this way and I have begun thinking about converting them to a folder structure by month and year (above would now be in a folder called 2006/01/07).
Since all my photos are in one major directory, and since all my RAW Files have a XMP file associated with them, I am wondering if
- creating a new Lightroom Library,
- importing my photos to that new library,
- moving the photos to a new directory and
- working on the new structure that way
would be a good approach.
Is there a better way of moving photos and folders around in Lightroom? By the way, I am currently on Version 4.
