Has this been implemented yet? This is a very normal feature of Lightroom, and I don't understand why PM can't do this.
What I do, almost every time I use LR to import photos from a CF card to my harddrive, is rename them as they move. I often have days worth of work that I import at that session, but I need to rename photos using a place, so if I'm using PM as "ingest" (instead of import), I want to only ingest some of the photos on the CF card.
I have used the 'copy selected' feature of PM, but that takes just as long as LR, and the reason I want to use PM is that it ingests so quickly. But when copying, it's very slow.
Please, someone tell me I didn't waste my $$ on PM because it can't do a selective ingest, as Lightroom has done for years.
