Some folders are used more then others and it would be nice to be able to create shortcuts.

Click the button at the top of the screen - the top left corner of the dialog - and you'll see your recently used folders. Your favorites are probably already there.

Or you can drag-and-drop a folder to your LR main Library window and that'll initiate an import.

Initiate an import, but it should assume the destination will be the folder you're dragging into.

Really, you should be able to drag & drop to any folder in your folders list and it would initiate an import to that specific folder.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom: Add the ability to save favorite source folders in the import photos d....

It would be nice if we could save specific folders as "Favorite Import Locations". Currently I can dock a folder but Lightroom does not maintain docked folders between imports.

It would save tons of time if we didn't need to drill down into the folders each time.

@Alex Van Dreel -- we will discuss this aspect internally with Engineering Team. That said, as of now you can color label folders implying that they are Favorite Import.
