Import photos using fewer options

You can import folders of photos using a simplified import window that offers quick access to key import options, including presets. The minimal import window does not display thumbnail previews.

  1. Click the Show Fewer Options button  in the lower-left corner of the import window.
  2. Click Select A Source on the left side of the window to choose the path for the photos you want to import.
  3. In the middle of the import window, specify whether you want to Copy As DNG, Copy, Move, or Add the photos to the catalog.
  4. Click To on the right side of the window and specify a destination.
  5. (Optional) Apply a metadata preset, add keywords, and destination subfolder options.
