Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing from your hard drive, part of Learning Lightroom 3.
Chances are that you have photos, maybe lots of photos, that you have already…taken and that you would like to include in Lightroom.…This movie covers how to import photos that you've already offloaded from your…camera to your computer's hard drive, or even to an external drive.…This is similar to the technique that I covered in the last movie for importing…the exercise files for the course, but in this case, we will be importing your…personal photos into the default main Lightroom catalog.…Before you get started importing existing photos, it's really worth it to take…the time to organize them into folders.…
At the very least, decide where you are going to store all the photos that you…will be bringing into your Lightroom catalog and create one big folder there.…I will call that the umbrella folder.…Putting all your Lightroom photos, existing ones and those you shoot in the…future, into this one umbrella folder will make it easier if you have to move…them all to another drive when the drive you are using gets full.…
