Is there any way to move photos from a current album to a new one, short of reloading them into the new one and deleting them from the old one?

Hi John, no one has answered you so will advise what I know (someone please correct me if wrong).
I think that only an administrator can move photos. Similarly with posts when the edit option expires. You can however download photos from your album to your computer if you dont have a copy but only one at a time. You can upload multiple photos in one operation.
You can't delete photos in an older post but can copy and paste them into a new post.

The biggest problem if you start to delete or move photos is that they will not have the same url as when uploaded they are given two unique numbers, one relating to the album and the other to the individual image so any that have already been used in posts will no longer be visible so I would ask that you reload rather than move/delete.
If it is just a case of housekeeping then you can change the album title which would better describe the contents of yours as it has more than just the title engine in it. Then as you start another model create an individual album for each.
There is no "move" option for either members or moderators when it comes to photos

Thanks for your reply. From looking around that is what I thought, there is no way to move pictures from one album to another. The reason for the question was, as you suggest, a case of housekeeping, to create individual albums for each subject, as currently everything is under Wyvern. I have all the pictures so I'll sit down and make some new albums upload the pictures and delete the ones in Wyvern. Thanks

The reason you can't move images is that it would 'break' any posts that the images have been embedded in.
