Chapter 5. IMPORT PHOTOS INTO LIGHTROOM > Import Photos into Lightroom

5.4. Import Photos into Lightroom

Importing deserves as much—or more—attention as other parts of the workflow. The care you take completing an efficient import will determine the ease or difficulty of the rest of the workflow. Plan your imports carefully, and you will benefit from one of Lightroom's key strengths: batch processing.

5.4.1. ABOUT BATCH PROCESSING

Usually you'll import multiple image files all at once (though you can and sometimes will import just one photo). This is the first instance of batch processing in our workflow. When processing many images during a single operation, the choices you make become increasingly important. Effective batch processing requires planning ahead, thinking carefully about the software settings and considering the effects of your actions before going forward. After you've run through the import process a few times, you'll know the key settings to check and double-check (and triple-check) before clicking the Import button.
