    Auto import multiple folders?

    ILikePhotos07

      I have been using the Auto Import function in LR3 to import all my Photo Stream photos on my Mac into LR automatically.

      (using Adam Portilla's method at https://plus.google.com/101906353514641308377/posts/e1K1iZZFVbD). 

       

      Now that I have several shared Photo Stream folders, in addition to my own Photo Stream, I would now like to import these photos into a separate folder in LR automatically - so that when photos are added to the shared album(s), they are automatically added in LR as well.

       

      Does anyone know of a convienent method of doing multiple "auto-import" folders.  Looks like auto-import only allows you to import from one folder into a single LR folder.  Is there another function that can do a similar task?

          Probably not by your definition of "convenient".

          Yes: OttoImporter.

           

           

          UPDATE OttomanicImporter v3 is out which includes same functionality as OttoImporter, but user-friendlier setup...
