But Shotwell falls back to the file timestamp and puts the file

You can change the event assigned to a photo or group of photos.

But that won't move the photo in the new directory, if that's what you
are after.

I place the photos in the correct directory manually, then start
shotwell. The photos do not move, the directories are not renamed.

In my case, I do not know the exact dates, so I name the events for a
serial code of each roll, maybe the year if I know it. Some of my rolls
cover two years.

It is not optimal, I want to adapt the exif data more appropriately.

So if I manually do this (picking an arbitrary day of a known month)

$ mkdir Pictures/2001/08/01/
$ cp ~/Pictures.OLD/2001/2001-08-France/*  \

and then run Shotwell again, it will put them in the right place in its
internal library as well as keep them in the directory I've put them in?
