how to delete all tags from shotwell

i have been having this issue where some stock photos where imported into shotwell. Now that is not bad on its own but they brought with them hundreds of image tags.

enter image description here

I tried removing all the tags from the images but now I just have a bunch of empty tags. I want to be able to use the tags for sorting my photos but I can’t with all of this garbage. is there a way to remove all tags without having to delete them one by one. I would assume that it is in some folder somewhere but I can’t find it.

Those are stored at $HOME/.shotwell/data/photo.db

It is a database file and you can use something like sqlitebrowser to explore that database. You can use a DELETE to delete records.
