I have LR5 on my mac but have not used it yet so a few questions:

How do I import the photos to LR?

Where do the photos go on my mac?

Do I have to have folders/smart albums on Photos first before importing to LR? or on Finder?

The easiest way that I know of is to download the files from your card onto a folder in "finder" call it something appropriate! Then using the library mode of Lr navigate to your folder and import your files and you can then add them to a collection!

That is a very simplistic method, you may want to go to YouTube to find a video about downloading files!

I have a 12" MacBook. When I connect a card reader and open Lightroom I click on the Import button, then select the source, then check the photos I want to import, then press the button and Lightroom imports them. It saves them into a library in my Pictures folder.
