Bypassing Lightroom catalogue ?
7 months ago

Hi !

As Nikon's Capture NX2 will no more be updated, I guess that, whenever/if ever I buy a new Nikon, I will HAVE to switch to another RAW converter, and it seems that LR is the best (or one of...) !

The problem -to me- is that I never take a lot of images in a row, so I don't need LR cataloging system ! Moreover, I use Nikon Transfer and set it to automatically create a MM-DD-YY sub-directory within my D:// PHOTOS, then upload the new pics in this sub-directory, delete the files in my cards and finally opens the new sub-directory in ViewNX2 ! I use this process since the beginning of ViewNX and like it ! I DO NOT WANT to change that way of "sorting" my pics !

So the question is: is there a way to TEACH Lightroom to work the way I want when importing my files ?

NB. For the rest of the post-process, I guess I can mansge without too many problems....

Simple question, but I'm afraid the answer will not be so simple !?!

Thanks for any help.....

J-P.
