Yes you read that correctly, despite what many people told me, this is entirely possible and it’s also incredibly easy! A little known function of Lightroom that can save you a LOT of time.

This is great, but I would really like Adobe to add the feature like in Picasa where it begins caching files to disk right when you open the import dialog. I am always pissed about setting up the import folder, adding tags, etc. when I’m going to have to wait for the files to copy until after I hit start. Oh well, maybe in LR5…
I haven’t used Picasa but that sounds like an odd feature. What if you don’t want all the photos or you want to rename them on ingest?
Blown away. Thank you! Not a little bummed I didn’t know about this sooner!! This has cost me so much sleep, waking up throughout the night just to get the next card going so I could start work in the morning. Thanks!
Haha! Glad you like it! Please share it with your friends as many people do not know about this 🙂
