The Easy Way to Create Subfolders in Lightroom Classic

Adobe Lightroom Classic

To quickly create a subfolder without having to scroll to the top of the Folder panel, Control -click (Mac) | right -click (Win) on the desired parent folder and choose “Create Folder Inside “xxx”…” from the list (you don’t actually have to click on the folder to select it, Lightroom will know where you control/right -clicked). This can be very useful as you create more and more folders in the Folders panel.

Here, I right-clicked on the USVI folder in order to quickly  create a folder inside of it (as opposed to clicking on the + (plus) icon and having to navigate to the USVI folder).

You can also use this shortcut to select “Import into this Folder” to display the Import dialog while automatically setting the destination folder.
