If you have added images to a folder that Lightroom is already aware of, instead of using the Import dialog, you can simply Control (Mac), right mouse (Win) -click the folder (in the Folder panel) and choose Synchronize Folder… to (import) any additional images in that folder.

    Great tip.

    What if I add new images to more than one folder that LR is aware of – is there any way that I can do a general Synchronization so that it synchronizes more than one folder at a time?

    ZSelect the parent folder and then choose Synchronize. For example, if you have a folder named PHOTOS, and three subfolders: 2008, 2009, 2010, synchronize PHOTOS to have LR search for photos in all three subfolders.
