I can't seem to find a way to drag a photo into Lightroom CC; only the + import button works. Is there a way to drag and drop? Thanks.

I am new to LR and was looking for this feature.

This kind of "spirit" rather sounds like LR is still rather a programm under construction.

I haven't see this (missing) feature for quite some time.

No steps forward, 3 steps back seems to be the motto at Adobe. Drag and drop from the finder to a folder/album of your choice seems embarrassingly basic. It is 2019, Adobe.... Please.

I would like to see drag and drop within the app. 

In grid view, I’d like to be able to select photos and drag them into an album

Thanks

I want drag and drop in Lightroom, please add this feature.

It's a hassle to click "Add photos" and navigate to the folder I already have open in Finder.

I want to try using LR but I'll have to stick to Bridge for now because it has drag and drop.
