All of a sudden, when inserting a card file and choosing Import, the destination arrow to my hard drive files does not open. My choices Mac HD or Mac Backups.backupdb are available. I should have the complete folders to choose from on my hard drive? Whats going on? Help...

And what do you see when you scroll down the right-side panels, of the Import screen, to the 'Destination' panel?
Any Folders there?

Large (4K) screens do indeed create file too large for inclusion in a post. The solution is to capture just a relevant part of the full screen or crop a relevant part of the full screen image and save that smaller file.
