The file name templates can be defined in a flexible way. Provide the same flexibility also for the folders (under Destination) instead of just having predefined templates.

That makes the switch to Lightroom easier. For example, my default way to organise the pictures is in Folders with the template YYYY/YYYY-MM. That one is not available.

Good idea.

In the mean time, you can edit these manually by creating/editing TranslatedStrings.txt in Resources/{lang} folder in with app/program files.

I use Downloader Pro from Breeze Systems for my downloads. This gives greater flexability in naming the folders when downloading. When you then add these to your Lightroom catalogue you can add the Lightroom metadata, and keywords that you require.
Perhaps Adobe should look at this!!
