I have installed a copy of Lightroom 5 and am now attempting to import all the photos on my hard drive, into Lightroom. I have a folder called Activities, with many sub folders. When I select Activities under the Import, no photos appear unless I select a subfolder of Activities in which case the photos that are in that folder do I appear and I can import them. The problem though is that the subfolder photos then show up in Lightroom, WITHOUT the Folder Activities. I want the same file structure in Lightroom as exists on my hard drive currently. How can I import all, AND keep the same structure?
Lightroom always keeps the same folder structure as was present at the time of import. If you don't see Activities, then in Lightroom right-click on a folder and select Show Parent.
