Description

Hi.
I'm not sure if it's more of a bug report, or a feature request...
IMO it's annoying enough to be a bug.

When Importing photos from camera (or a camera-formatted memory card), all the photos are rescanned each time, over and over again.

This is extremely annoying, especially so when using large memory cards (I use a 32GB card, which takes many minutes to scan). Especially so since the general DT UI is frozen in the meanwhile (or rather the focus is on the Import window), and doubly so since it's impossible to start import before scanning is complete (even if you've already selected the photos you like)

I'm not sure how to do that, but I'd think that scanning should be necessary only once for each time the program is run, unless the memory card was removed and reinserted...
