When importing photos, why can't I highlight a certain bunch (let's say ten photos in the center of a batch) and right click to select all? It's very time consuming to go through and check every image, especially when I only want certain groups of photos from a big folder of images.

You can. Deselect all images in the import window. Select the ones you wish to import (use shift-click, or cmd/control-click), then click the selection box on ONE of your highlighted images - all the highlighted images will then have a check in the selection box for import.

Ahah! Much better. Unfortunately I was right clicking select image and that wouldn't. Didn't try just hitting the check box! Thanks so much!
