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.

Quick Access:

How to Import Photos From Digital Camera to a Folder on Mac
