Chapter 5. It's All About the Workflow > Caching Multiple Folders

Caching Multiple Folders

Some cameras create subfolders on the camera media with 100 images in each. If you use larger-capacity cards, you may have three or four image folders. The fastest way to deal with multiple folders is to copy all the image folders to a single enclosing folder. Then, when the copy is complete, point the File Browser at the enclosing folder and choose Build Cache for Subfolders from the File Browser's File menu. Contrary to what the online help says, Build Cache for Subfolders simply does that—it builds a cache for each subfolder in the enclosing folder, reading the thumbnails and metadata and generating previews for all the images contained in the subfolders. It displays a progress bar so you'll know when it's done.

Wait until the File Browser has finished building its cache before you try to do anything to the images. The typical tasks you perform in the File Browser include renaming, sorting, flagging or ranking, applying rotation, entering keywords and IPTC metadata, and applying Camera Raw settings.
