Getting Photos from Files and Folders

Before you import photos and videos into the Organizer, it’s important to set file import preferences to specify the options you want for the import process. When you get photos from your computer, the files are not copied or moved. The Organizer creates links to them and adds them to the catalog. If you have photo files on your computer that are not already included in the catalog and don’t appear in the Organizer, you can use the Get Photos from Files and Folders dialog box to navigate to the folder location with the files you want and then add them or you can drag them directly from an Explorer window to the Organizer window.
