Yes, you have a choice. Just don't do any more updates. There is no choice between import screens. The "old" method is much more intuitive if you take the time to understand it.
Thanks for that Jim , but IMO , poor advice on not doing ADOBE updates-they are updates for a reason. Either import module works for me, now that I am use to using the new module, a shame to have to go back to the old....I have been with LR since 1.0 and we are up to 6.2..I guess they are doing that for a reason-LR is still the best...thanks for your input
