sub folders

Is there a way to not have a subfolder when you ingest files. I will type in a new folder name on ingest and there is always a second numbered folder inside that folder with my images.

Make sure that the Source Directory Structure popup menu reads "ignore - copy all photos into the same destination", and make sure that the Copy Photos popup menu reads "into folder with name".  Then enter the name of the folder into the Folder Name: field.

Just FYI: You can also use image variables in the Folder Name: field if you want.  I use {year4}/{month0} in mine and Ingest creates my folder structure for me.
