Lightroom Tip - New Synchronize Folders Option

At last Lightroom now has a fully functional and working synchronize folders ability. Version 1.1 lacked this and it was very time consuming to have to manually add new images to the folder structure. Now all you have to do is highlight the folder you want to synchronise,.right click and select Synchronise Folder. This can be done at any level within the folder hierarchy.
