Lightroon: Tethered Shooting and Destination Folders

Hello,

I have noticed that LR want to automatically create a folder for each location of tethered shooting. I would like to be able to tell it where to place the images and NOT have it create a folder.

It seems odd to me to have a tethered feature and not be able to direct the program to a certain folder for images. I shoot high volume location days and make up my folders with the kids names ahead of time to make the shoot more efficient. LR's approach makes this workflow impossible. Too bad for me as I need to buy a separate program for location capturing. Why such a rigid design?

Do you want to put everything into one big folder?

Actually, I have a lot of folders already created. On location shoots I make up folders ahead of time with kids names so I can just select the folder and put their images in.

With LR's auto folder creation this workflow is not possible.
