All right, I feel stupid.
I am staring at a tutorial that tells you how to import pictures from file folders.
I have 3 Folders, folder 1 to folder 3. Folder 3 has 3 subfolders and lets say subfolder 3 had 6 sub-subfolders.
I have already imported folders 1 and 3 successfully without importing the subfolders. I now want to import subfolder 3 from folder 3 (which has 6 sub-subfolders) but not subfolders 1 and 2.
What I am seeing is that if I select the main folder the "Get Folders from subfolders" is active and can be checked or unchecked as I desire. Now when I select subfolder 3 (which has 6 sub-subfolders) the "Get Folders and subfolders" is greyed out and the "Get Media" button is greyed out. In other words, there is no way to import all the folders under subfolder 3 unless I go back to the parent directory and select subfolders or I go the the 6 individual sub-subfolders under subfolder 3.
So I imported all the pictures from the one of the individual folders, now I can't import any of the other folders. Why can't I import just the subfolder and all its subfolders? I keep reading the tutorial and it sounds like I should be able to do this?
Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?
Also, I know without a picture it might not be clear what I am trying to do, hopefully I communicated the issue properly.
OK, I see it now,
Your way does work, but to get it to work from the "Import From Files and Folders" Dialog, there are two panels in the windows dialog box. The right side shows the tree stucture that like the organizer and the left side shows the files and folder inside the right selection. This dialog is different from the organizer window in that while the left tside of this window looks like the organizer tree it is not the left panel, but the right panel that seems to really control what is selected. I use the left panel to change what is in the right panel but I need to select the folder in the right panel to get it to work.
In other words, I select folder 3 on the left. This shows subfolders 1-3 on the right. When I select subfolder 3 on the right side the import from subfolders becomes active and the get media button becomes active.
If I select subfolder 3 on the left then the right shows the 6 sub-subfolders. I can select any and/or all sub-subfolders and the get media button (and get from subfolders) buttons become active. Took a little getting used to but I think I get how this works now.
