Be careful with the import folder menu as well. I have had issues with 
it. Also, I just got bitten by the changing ID's issue. I cloned a card 
and then all of the images from the first card changed IDs. Use the 
file menu import image or import image as control and then immediately 
change IDs to play it safe.
