Hi Jim,

Welcome to the Adobe Community!

Could you please let us know the version of Lightroom you're working on? You can check that by going to Help > System Info

 

Below you can see the articles for both Lightroom and Lightroom Classic:

Lightroom: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/lightroom-cc/using/add-photos.html

Lightroom Classic: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/lightroom-classic/how-to/import-photos.html

 

Regards,
Sahil

v9.0 - So you are using Lightroom-CLASSIC (Folder based)

Importing existing Photos in Folders to the Lightroom Catalog, and preserve the folder structure etc, is done by using the "ADD" option in the Import dialog.

See this video from Julianne Kost- (*Note the video uses the 'old' name of Lightroom-CC but it still applies to the 'New' name of Lr-Classic)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--nEKNEH_1I&feature=youtu.be

And Chapter 4 of the Help Reference PDF-

And more informative tutorials at -

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 9.4, Lightroom 3.4, Photoshop 2020 (21.2.1), Nikon DSLR, Windows-10.
The product featured in this video is Lightroom Classic CC, previously known as Lightroom CC. For more information, please visit: https://adobe.ly/2gNcw59. ...
