If you know your way around phpmyadmin the following thread might help,45737.0.html

Or you could just go into the properties for each photo and edit them.
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

Categories can not contain files. Only albums can contain files. Categories can only contain sub-categories and albums, but not files. If the albums you created reside in the root category (i.e. if they are in no category at all) and you want them within categories, just create the categories as you see fit and then move the album(s) into the categories using the category drop-down list on the album properties screen.
You don't need particular hacks or add-ons to apply a simple move of an album from "no category" into another admin-created category.
For details and for any future requests, please read up board rules and do as suggested there. Note the fact that posting a link to your gallery is mandatory in every thread you have.
