Importing to a specific folder
From within the Library module, you can import photos directly to a folder in the Folders panel without needing to specify a destination in the Import dialog box.
In the Folders panel, right-click the lesson02A folder and choose Import To This Folder from the menu.
This will automatically bring up the Import dialog box. Notice that the Destination is already selected for you.
In the Source panel, you’ll notice that you have your hard drive, any connected memory cards, and any network drives available to you for import.
All of the other panels are available for you to use. From here, you can still apply metadata templates, change the filename, add keywords, and so forth. Click Cancel when done.
This feature is useful when you are working with multiple memory cards and want to have all of them available to import to a shoot. That said, Lightroom does a great job of remembering the last location you saved to, so you may find that you rely on this a lot less than you’d think.
