  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

Can Lightroom automatically look for new images in the folders in the panel "Folders" and show them or a message?

No, but you can use the "Auto Import" option which will watch one specific folder and move any images that arrive in that folder into another specified folder and automatically import them into Lightroom.

See File>Auto Import....

Thank you!

But I would like the images to be stroed in different folders and not only in a single one.

It woud be very nice if that automatic import function in the watch-folder could use the standard Import settings. :)
