In import window use the Add option (top import options bar). Add imports the files/folders where they are without renaming.
Thank you - but what I am importing is actually a copy and the image exists in a folder and I want to add that folder, say named fido_2015_05_02 into the library. What happens is that at the end of the import the folder is named 2015 > 2015_05_02. Hope you can help as I suspect it is a simple setting. Thanks
Are you on a Mac or A Windows PC? Right click on the drive name or letter and select Show Parent folder (Windows) or something similar for a Mac.
It's not Renaming it. It's not showing the full PATH to the folder
