Hello, I have two questions about importing photos in Lightroom that I'm hoping someone can help me with.
1. How can I get Lightroom to recognize photos deleted from my Library as duplicates?
2. Is there a way to select multiple photos to exclude (un-check) from import other than just clicking the check box on every photo?
Thanks for your help, it would save me a lot of time if this could be done.
Instead of deleting your photos immediately, mark them as Reject (press the X key). After you have imported all of the photos that you are going to import before formatting the SD card, go back to Lightroom and delete the rejected photos. Control-Backspace is the shortcut to delet rejected photos.
You might consider using additional SD cards and not try to have more than one import before formatting.
To select multiple photos before import: Control click on photos or click hold shift and click on consecutive photos. After the photos are selected, click the check box and they will all be selected.
