I'm trying to use Lightroom to import my photos from a cardreader. I would like to store them in a folder hierarchy based on shooting date using the following example convention:
Unfortunately for me, it looks as if Lightroom can only save them in folders based on the following formatting convention:
This is a real problem, as I don't want to have to rename all of my existing folders to force my structure into the one that Lightroom apparently uses exclusively. I can continue using iImport to copy my files across to my PC, and then import them into Lightroom, but this adds an unwanted step to the whole process. I'd much rather that Lightroom was able to fire up and do want I want it to.
Is there any way around this date formatting issue? It seems to be a bit of an oversight if there's no easy solution within Lightroom's feature set.
