Let's say I want to import images into the following directory structure "USA\New York" where "USA" and therefore "New York" does not exist. I cannot use "Into Subfolder" as multilevel directories can not be entered here.
So I need to create the USA folder first and then import into "New York" ( switch lightroom will automatically create if it doesn't exist).
To create the "USA" folder I can click here:
This displays a windows dialog to create the new "USA" folder
After clicking on Select Folder we return to Lightroom but newly created and selected folder does not appear in the destination folder list:
The only way I can figure out how to add the USA folder is to exist Import and get into it again.
Once in appears in the list I can create the New York folder during the import by adding it here:
Why do I have exit the import dialog and start it again to see the "USA" folder, especially when it was selected and passed back to Lightroom ?
Is there way to refresh the folder list in the destination list without exiting Import ?
For me it makes no sense to add the ability to create a folder and then Lightroom doesn't use it.
I think the Create New Folder button is designed for the folder the images are to be stored in, which in your case will be a sub-folder. So I guess the parent folder must already exist.
For example I keep all my photos under the year they were taken so it is then easy to create new sub-folders.
See #5 at the link below:
Maybe. I would have thought the "into subfolder" was the place to define and place your images.
As it will automaticall create the folder if it doesn't exist.
This is why I thought the "Create New Folder" was to create a new Parent folder and "Into Subfolder" to create and import images into the child folders
