Using Photo Mechanic Plus to move folders will help make sure your catalogs know where items are. Occasionally however, you might find it easier to rearrange files and folders outside of Photo Mechanic Plus by using macOS Finder or Windows Explorer. In that case, you will need to update their location in your catalogs the next time you use Photo Mechanic Plus. To do this:

  1. Select the Browse tab.
    Open the Folder Path subtree.
  2. Right Click or Ctrl-click on the folder that you would like to update the location of 
  3. Select Update Folder Location... 
    • (Note: Builds prior to Photo Mechanic Plus Build 6375, will say "Choose new location...")
  4. Specify the new location.


Note: the catalog fixes up the paths and the Browse tree updates, but any existing Browse tabs showing that old path will not correct themselves. Clicking on the updated folder path in Browse will show updated results.
