How to move photos from one album to another?

Hello/Hi/Greetings,

I have found that some photos are in the wrong album and I'd like to move them to another. I haven't yet found a way to do this using the admin tools and wonder if it is possible?

Could it be done in a file manager by moving the files around in the ./galleries folder and rsyncing? I'm loath to try this out in case I mess up the site totally.

Piwigo version: 2.9.1
PHP version:
MySQL version:
Piwigo URL: http://

Not quite. I find that the photo(s) are copied to the destination album rather than moved. A typical result is shown in the screenshot attached where the photo is listed as belonging to both albums.

If you are using physical albums (like me) check out my plugin:

Thanks for the link. Where does it appear in the admin menus? I don't see under admin/plugins.

It appears under Batch Manager actions ("Move to physical album") and on individual photo properties (Move tab).
