I have photos in DCIM\g343asdfj Folders that have been indexed in picasa and facetagged. Now I want to move them to photos\2013-02-23 or as required by the date taken of the picture. How do I do that in picasa automatically without losing information?

One think I can do is use an external tool to do it and readd it into picasa, but then it will add duplicates to the collection and have to redo the face tagging?

Picasa has an import to dated feature which does this, but then it creates duplicates of the photo (and I have about 20GB to organize). So my question is has anyone done this successfully for their own collection?

I tried moving some existing files into new directories and picasa was able to find all the tags correctly. –  Vijay Mar 19 '14 at 4:02
However, any albums containing the photos, don't have those photos anymore! –  Vijay Mar 24 '14 at 11:33
