Export rated images in multiple folders into Lightroom
« on: July 11, 2017, 09:44:12 am »
I am using PM 5, build 18729 on a Mac running Sierra 10.12.5 and Lightroom CC.

I create a master folder (e.g. Athletes)
I ingest images in multiple folders (e.g.. Athlete1, Athlete2, Athlete3, etc.), under the master folder Athletes
I go through the images in each folder and give a 1 rating to all of the images that I want to import into Lightroom.

Currently i do the following:
1. Rate the images in Athlete1 folder
2. Select all rated images in Athlete1
3. Import selected images within Athlete1 into LR
4. Rate images in Athlete2
5. Select all rated images in Athlete2
6. Import rated images within Athlete2 into LR

What I want to be able to do is:
1. Rate the images in Athlete1 folder
2. Rate the images in Athlete2 folder
3. Select all rated images within Athletes
4. Import rated images within Athletes into LR, maintaining the folder structure of Athlete1, Athlete2, etc.

When drag the Athletes folder into LR, ALL images get imported, not just the rated images.

Is it possible to import RATED IMAGES ONLY, within multiple folders, into LR and still maintain the folder structure?

Essentially what I want to be able to do is stay with PM, rate all of my images that I want to keep, and then do a single import of only rated images into LR.

Thank you.
