Getting your images from Select into Lightroom

There are a few ways of getting your images into Lightroom Classic or CC once you have finished your selection. Here are three ways:

Option 1 – Use the SHIP button

Click the [SHIP + EDIT] button, or press Ctrl E. This will open up a window with options where you can choose which images you want to ship.

The Shipping window will open and here you can choose your shipping settings, including which images to ship, what program to ship to, and if you'd like to apply an Edit Style.

When you're ready to ship, make sure you have Lightroom open on the Library tab of the catalog you want to ship to. Then click 'Ready to Ship'. Click and drag the folder icon Select shows you and drop it into the open Lightroom app.

The Lightroom import window will open with your images, and it will show all images in the source folder with shipped selection ticked. If you have subfolders in your source folder, make sure to tick 'include subfolders' so all of your selected images are available.

Check your import options: Copy as DNG, Copy, Move or Add. Add is the most common option as this will import them to Lightroom straight from the current source folder.
