Just tested moving images in the Albums View:
when you move an image, the icon view is not updated
(but the image is moved). This only seems to happen when
recursive viewing of albums is activated.

About copy and paste: if I am in recursive view mode
and do a CTRL+C of one image of the first displayed album
and try to paste it into a different album (but still in the same view), 
one gets a message box "File already exists",
The picture isn't stored on the local host.
Click on this label to load it".
Suggesting a new name works (though there is the confusing
"Rename" button; "Copy" would be better IMO).

So to me it seems as if the path, where the image should
be copied to is always determined from the first displayed folder,
but not from the currently selected (or active) image.
((Note that I am not sure what to do if 
is implemented. I.e., for a merged view
there would be no separators.))

Additional remark: image rotation according to exif is not taken
into account properly in the message box.
