    Hi guys,

    I have a folder with all my photos organized neatly in my PC, but only untill recently I started to use Lightroom and now I understand I need to create a catalog, is there any way to copy the photos directly from the folder, and subfolder and that lightroom organizes them in the same way as they are?

    I mean:

    I have a folder for example: Photos 2013, subfolder Photos travel south america, subfolder Photos Travel Peru.

    Is there any way to create a catalog organized in the same manner? but without having to do it manually or I just have to rearrange all manually?

    (sorry for the bad english not my native language)

    Easy. In the LR import dialog choose to ADD photos to the catalogue, not COPY. That will leave the images where they are and LR will use the folder hierarchy you created instead of its own.
