How do I transfer directly to Adobe Lightroom?

You can use PhotoSync to transfer your photos automatically to Adobe Lightroom. The Auto Import feature automatically imports photos into a Lightroom catalog by monitoring a watched folder for photos and then moving the photos into a managed folder in the catalog.

Enable automatically importing photos

  • Choose File > Auto Import > Enable Auto Import.

Specify Auto Import settings

  1. Choose File > Auto Import > Auto Import Settings.
  2. In the Auto Import Settings dialog box, specify a "Watched Folder". This should be the folder that contains your PhotoSync transfers.
  3. Select Standard from the Initial Previews menu to have Lightroom render previews of the imported photos rather than only using the embedded previews in the photo files.

Set up watched folders

  1. In the Auto Import Settings dialog box, click the Choose button next to Watched Folder.
  2. Navigate to the location you want and do any of the following:
    • To create a watched folder, click Make New Folder and then overwrite New Folder to give the folder a name (Windows), or click New Folder (Mac OS), give the folder a name, and click Create.
    • To select an existing watched folder, select the folder.
    Note: You cannot choose an existing folder that contains photos as a watched folder.
  3. Click OK (Windows) or Choose (Mac OS).

Select managed folders for auto-imported photos

When Lightroom detects photos added to a watched folder, the photos are moved into a managed folder called a destination folder and automatically imported into the library.

  1. In the Destination area of the Auto Import Settings dialog box, click the Choose button beside Move To.
  2. In the Browse For Folders (Windows) or Open (Mac OS) dialog box, navigate to the location you want, and do any of the following:
    • To create a destination folder, click Make New Folder and then overwrite New Folder to give the folder a name (Windows), or click New Folder, give the folder a name, and click Create (Mac OS).
    • To select an existing destination folder, select the folder.
  3. Click OK (Windows) or Choose (Mac OS).
  4. (Optional) Type a name for the destination folder in the Subfolder Name text box.
