Bulk Ingest
« on: September 21, 2018, 09:37:02 AM »
I have a large number of images in a directory structure and I'd like to ingest them all in one batch.  If I set ingest to a parent folder, I don't see any option to have ingest traverse the directory structure below to ingest all images in the sub-directories.  Is this possible?

Windows 10 64bit

Use the "Ingest Folders" option and add your source folder there.  It will be fully traversed.

Thanks for the quick reply.  On the flip side, is there a way to export from all of the subfolders at once.  It looks like I have to select each sub-folder individually.

You only have to add the folder at the top of the tree, all of its children will be ingested.
