    How do I get the photo import app to only import new pictures?

    The Windows 10 app for importing photos imports all photos. Is there a way to get it to only import new photos? Otherwise I have to uncheck all the ones that have already been imported.

    The W10 photo app keeps track of photos that have already been downloaded so once you have downloaded your images they will not be selected the next time you insert your memory card or connect your camera.

    If this is not happening for you it may be because you have just started using it and so you have pictures on your camera or memory card that were downloaded via another route. To get around this you need to delete all the pictures off the camera or memory card that you have already downloaded and then when you next insert the card you will only be downloading new ones and the W10 photo app will keep track of this for you.

    I imported all the pictures (not that many) that were on my iPhone and now it keeps track of just the new ones. Thanks Philc43!
