Does the photo path contain the name of the photo? For instance you have 
a path of:


Does that URL contain the name of the file (like trail.jpg) or is that 
somewhere else?

Reason is you might be able to reconstruct a new path and not import 
each individually and you can take some advantage of using QGIS (without 
the EVIS plugin) to view your photos (but first the file path issue - 
then the other issue).
