LIGHTROOM: Add import filtering

I'd like to see robust import filtering by file type at least, and potentially by anything that the Library filtering can do.

I am evaluating Lightroom as a replacement for Aperture, where I have over 155,000 images cataloged. So far its off to a rocky start :(

My current on-disk workflow has a master retouched PSD file, print-size JPEG, and web-size JPEG stored in nested folders. I'd like to do a mass import of all my finished images but ONLY the JPEG files (and ideally only the print-size versions) and not import all the PSD files.

My Aperture catalog has been built up over about 6 years so it hasn't been a problem, but migration is proving to be a PITA.

And its not helpful to suggest "Hey why not store your files in different folders" because that ship has sailed for one, and I want them on disk together for two.

FWIW, I've found forum posts from 4-5 years ago asking for this functionality...
