    So, i have a NAS unit that has folders for all of my pics: "p:\2007\07\Fireworks Show 070407", for instance.

    I copy all of my photos into their specific folders, and I'd like LR to auto-import them WITHOUT moving them to a destination folder somewhere else.

    How can I do this without having to import them manually every time I add new pictures to the NAS drive, and NOT have them moved to a destination "working" folder? I don't want my pictures to be in two places.

    :dunno:

    should be pretty easy, just set the main folder as auto import, and in the first dialog box of the import screen say import at existing location.

    where does it say "import at existing location" on the auto import settings?
