Moving Storage Location for Database and Albums

Ive been looking through the digikam handbook but can’t seem to find what I’m looking for. Can someone tell me how I move my database and albums? New albums I create, show up with the new album name under Pictures (Windows 8.1). I would like to change the location of where those albums appear, and all of the necessary information for those albums so they show up in a specific digikam folder I have created on my external drive.

did you test> configuration> migration

do a test before moving everything

To migrate the database you can use the Database Migration tool under Settings.

To move albums you can add a new collection in Settings - Configure digiKam - Collections - Add Collection and then move your images there.
