Do you happen to know if there is a way to make this the default
behavior?  In other words, "Copy files to the Photos folder" seems to be
automatically checked, and I need to remember each time to uncheck it.
Is there a way to set it to be unchecked by default?  Sorry for straying
a bit off topic, but it's been on my mind awhile and your post prompted
a query from me.  :-)
