3 ideas for Lightroom
1 Can we have a colour wheel option for white balance like the one in Silkipix?
2. Can we have the option to over-ride the automatic copying of files from camera's flash card. i.e. The ability to choose 'import files at their current location' , so as to be able to have a look at files on the card without having to copy them.
3. When closing Lightroom there's currently the option to backup or skip. Could 'cancel' also be an option? I'm sure I'm not the only one who occasionally clicks mistakenly on close instead of minimise and end up having to close and reopen lightroom

Regarding #2: Because you chose "Import photos", LR assumes that is what you want to do. I suggest a workaround is to "Add" the camera flash card directory to your catalog instead. That way previews will be generated and you can work on the files directly without importing. On the other hand, I'm not sure why you would ever want to do this.

Thanks Jeff, I'll try that. I want to do it just so I can have a quick look at the photos on a big screen before deciding what to do with them ...if it use windows photos viewer or suchlike it doesn't rotate the portrait format automatically. Make sense?
