 The next item on this long list is what you would like Lightroom to do to the files before you save them. This is called Apply During Import. This list identifies some of the items that you can have Lightroom apply for every one of the images you are Importing. As you can see it is comprehensive and if all the files you are Importing would have the same
things done to them then this is a great way to save time. This could be a lot of fun.
So let’s move on to the final part of putting your files into your computer in the right place from a memory card with the right information that you want those files to have beforehand. The Destination tab allows you to choose the folder you want to put the files into or to create an entirely new folder on any drive you may want to use. This powerful feature gets your files to their final destination and allows Lightroom to use them from that location when you are doing your editing. Notice that you can put them into a subfolder and organize them by date in that folder. This is an ideal way to organize your folders. It gives you even more ways of being able to search for a file that you are looking for by providing not only a high level name to the folder, but the exact date that the file was put there. I strongly urge you to adopt this file naming convention and learn the power of it. It will save you hours of work.
So the only thing you have to do next is press the Import button on the bottom right of the page and it will begin importing your images to the hard drive, rename them, back them up to a secondary place, put them into a Collection of your choice and apply anything that you want to the individual images as well. Whew! That’s a lot of stuff happening for very little work on your
