Import Folder question

Advertisement

I have all of my photos organized on a hard drive in folders and subfolders. For example: Main Photos>2009>RAW136>20091112Grandmas Birthday. When I import into Aperture do I have to point to each individual subfolder or is there a way to point to "Main Photos" and have Aperture import all of the photos?
Thanks

I've had the same issue. When I click on the import arrow I get the import dialog box. When clicking on the main photo file name, nothing happens. If I finally click on the actual photo file eventually the photos show up. That might take a few minutes. Then the only way to get them to load is to do each file individually. The instructions say you can do the shift/click and choose several files at once, but that isn't working here.
The only way I found to get the whole file full of sub folders to load is to go up to the topl line and choose "File" and then Import and import files as projects. Again the instructions say if you have folders and sub folders already organized on Finder, the main folder names will be projects and the sub folders will be albums when imported (like it did with A2), but in A3 the main folders in Finder come in as folders in A3 and all the sub folders are projects, not albums.
So far I can't say I'm impressed with the changes. Their import dialog has either changed or not working on this computer. Same with the new import in Lightroom 3 beta, it is worse than ever.
I'm still debating on whether I'll stick with this or not. Both upgrades of the competing projects so far haven't impressed me.
