Do you know a scripting language (perl, ruby, python, awk)? Attached, find a rename in ruby 1. make a backup of your photos.db file 2. make absolutely positively sure that you correctly made a backup of your photos.db file 3. Edit the newname function of the attached ruby to your needs (this is the tricky bit ;^). This version moves from /home to /users. 4. Execute and pray if you so inclined. Note that the actual update is currently commented out (see comment) so that you can see what it does before doing it. Do not forget to backup your photos.db file first!!
