When exporting from Photos.app with settings that preserve the album & folder structure, every album folder contains dated folders for every date represented in that album, with the actual images inside those. An example export for this question gives this structure...
Export/ Colour/ 11 November 2005/ img_0440.jpg 13 November 2005/ pb130006_1_1.jpg Life/ Creatures/ 12 November 2005/ img_0453.jpg People/ 9 November 2005/ img_0174.jpg 10 November 2005/ img_0181.jpg 14 November 2005/ pb140009.jpg Plants/ 10 November 2005/ img_0404.jpg img_0408.jpg 13 November 2005/ img_0477.jpg 14 November 2005/ img_0625.jpg
What can I run in Terminal to traverse the contents of Export & move all found files up one directory level?
The desired result on my example would be...
Export/ Colour/ img_0440.jpg pb130006_1_1.jpg Life/ Creatures/ img_0453.jpg People/ img_0174.jpg img_0181.jpg pb140009.jpg Plants/ img_0404.jpg img_0408.jpg img_0477.jpg img_0625.jpg
A solution that works in
bash, because I do a lot of my CL stuff in BBEdit which is
bash only, or
fish because that's my preferred shell in Terminal, would be preferred, but I'll work with other shells.
