How to Import Photos from Digital Camera to Specific Folder on Mac

With macOS High Sierra, you can import photos from digital camera to your desired folder or deliver them into a new album on your Mac.

So if you are willing to import all of your memorable photos, which you had snapped using a power-packed DSLR while holidaying with your loved ones, to your Mac, you will be able to get them in a specific folder with ease. Unlike before, you won’t have to navigate through the entire photo library to filter the newly added shots and then pack them up in a separate folder. What’s more, there is also an option to set up the Photos app for macOS to import photos automatically from that specific device.
