hi. I store my lightroom library on an external drive. I recently converted from aperture to lightroom and have an import question. I have all of my presets correct to import photos from my camera, but I am having trouble importing from my computer desktop to my library. on my hard drive I have my library set up chronologically in month folders in year folders and have my presets from camera set to import my month/year. I added a photo to mu desktop from an email and want to import it into my library that is housed on an external drive. Do I COPY the photo into the corresponding month/year folder on my hard rive and THEN import into lightroom? And if so, do i choose "copy" or "add" on import choices? What I did originally was copy this individual photo onto the hard drive as an individual photo. when I went to import it, it didn't follow the import path I have set up from my camera. It was fine as I moved it into the proper folder once it was in lightroom, but I have to import several and want to know the correct process. Please advise.
Please clarify what version of Lightroom you are using. Is it the NEW Lightroom CC which is based? Or, is it Lightroom Classic CC? Or are you using some other version? The forum you have posted it is for the new cloud-based Lightroom CC.
That's a good question. I haven't switched anything...so I assume I am using "Lightroom CC (2015)...that's what it says in the menu...I don't know what lightroom classic is, but I do see it as an option. which should I be using? I am confused.
