Hello All, I am using PSE 18 on a Win 10 machine. I put all my pics into one folder that is on an external HD. If I have pics on an SD card from taking some pictures with my camera - I have been copying them to the above folder on my external HD.
When I import via a batch mode, it RUNS ALL of my pictures in that one big folder that is on my external. My concern is that if I import the pics directly from my SD card into PSE, and then remove the card from my PC so that I can use it again in my camera is that I will have 'missing connection' problems in PSE. Hence my copying pics to my ex HD and then doing a batch import.
The batch import of 100 new pics from the SD card will take SEVERAL hours because PSE will scan/import the WHOLE batch of pics from my external HD. I just want it to connect the new batch that I have copied from my SD card. That should take less 5 minutes.
I must be misunderstanding some basic PSE import concepts here . . . help please. I don't want to have to wait several hours every time I put 100 new pics into PSE. Yet, I do not want a bunch of 'missing connections' problems either. What am I doing wrong? How can I fix this problem?
