I use EOS Utility when tethering, but all photos end up in Lightroom, and I like auto-importing into LR as I shoot. So I use auto-import in LR, combined with a Monitor Folder provided by EOS Utility. This combination accomplishes these goals, BUT on the condition that everything goes in one and only one folder, no sub-folders. Sadly, I really like dated sub-folders, like the Import Module gives. More specifically, here's what I tried and what doesn't work:
- If I have the EOS Utility create sub-folders via the Monitor utility (yes, it's an option in EOS Utility), and I have LR auto-import the monitored folder, LR totally ignores photos within the sub-dir.
- If I want to tweak the auto-import settings in LR to auto-magically import into dated sub-folders, that option doesn't exist, even though all those options do exist in the Import Module.
- LR's own 'tethering' option has like, one option. It's inflexible.
Has anyone encountered this and found a workaround?
