I like to use a certain set of folders for each of the events that I shoot, e.g 1_Raw, 2_Jpegs Fullsize, 3)_ Jpegs Websize, etc. I have a folder on my desktop with these folders inside of it, ready for me to copy over to a new file; however, Lightroom won't recognize a file without a picture in it, so I can't import them. It seems silly that I should have to create this set of folders (there are about 12 of them) each time I bring files into LR.
Perhaps I just don't get the real meaning of the LR library, but rather than go back and forth to Bridge, I like to have everything show in LR. Any thoughts on this? I realize I could put a dummy image in each folder, and then I'd be able to import them. Is this really what I have to do?
