fslint! Now there is an app I haven't heard about in a long time. The
job is done and I used fslint. First I made a copy of my photos
directory and then created a list of files. Then ran fslint on the
original, created a file list after the operation and diffed both
lists. It all looks good, and it was easy. 

I'm playing with all the cool scripting hacks shared here as well.
Because they're fun and useful. Thanks everyone.
