First the positive things about Photo Downloader: it is fast and I may automatically delete downloaded images from SD card, concerning this two things, Lightroom suffers of bad behaviour and lack of functionality. Now for the annoying things: When will we get an updated Photo Downloader and getting rid of this 1998 look alike tool? There are several MAJOR problems: a) scrolling on Mac is WAY to fast and inaccurate, this page like scrolling NEVER stops there where it should stop and making a selection is quite a pain in the butt. b) due to that, efficient selection of images is almost impossible, why the heck are such trivial things like "Sort+Order by Shooting Date" or "Sort by name" missing??? c) Lightroom is importing to automatic generated folders named like e.g. YYYY-MM-DD. This is not possible with Photo Downloader, there are only several versions of YYYYMMDD, none of them has a dash and it is not possible to customise this. Is Adobe really already that big, that the left hand does not know what the right one is doing - communication between developers impossible? Unique look and feel? Unique folder and filenames must be kinda unknown thing at Adone d) the look and feel of Photo Downloader is quite 1997 or 1995 alike. MUST fix: a), b) and c). Nice to have: d).
