    How to consolidate daily folders into a single year for moving to external hard drive

    kinchimira

      My photos have been imported into an overall Year 2016 Folder (falling under MacIntosh HD --Pictures -- Year), and subcategorized by the date they were taken, each date having it's own folder.  Now I need to move all of these pictures off of my hard drive and onto my external drive, but I would like them to be categorized only in 1 folder for the year, not a ton of subfolders by date.  How do I safely accomplish this?  I already set up a "2016" folder on my external drive.  Do I have to individually drag each date folder into it?  I tried to move a batch of them and it didn't seem to like that.  Thank you for your help!
