That's odd. Select a photo, then choose Photos->Extended Information.
In the resulting dialog, the Location: field is empty? Are other values
(File size, Original dimensions and so on) also empty, or do they show
values? Can you send a screenshot of the Extended Information window to
shotwell at yorba.org?

Yes, we agree: it would be nice if you could copy (or drag) photos out
of Shotwell, and it would also be nice if copying (or dragging) a photo
to an application like gedit or gnome-terminal would copy the photo's
path. See http://redmine.yorba.org/issues/1098 , and also the
discussion at http://redmine.yorba.org/issues/3451 .
