If I want to ingest a disk of photos directly into my Lightroom folder tree, where they are destined to go anyway, is there a simple way to click on the LR folder, and have PM ingest the new folder of photos, directly under that LR folder?

If I have a folder tree:   _Lightroom\2018\Madurai\Aravind      ......can I click on that folder somehow, telling PM that the newly created PM folder will be under "Aravind" in the above example?

I know I can type out the path, but it would be nicer to just navigate to the Aravind folder in the above situation, and select it.

If not now, maybe a suggestion for the future.

Mike,

Use the "Primary Destination..." button in the Ingest dialog to pick the folder you want to ingest into.  A folder chooser dialog will appear.  Navigate to your folder, select it, and click the "Open" button.

It's as simple as that.
