I suspect I haven't learnt to trust it. The import will be the same as 
any other OS - upload or drag and drop.

There seems to be a thin progress bar up top that I eventually noticed. 
I guess the thing to do is count the images and see if they tally - I 
always worry with web uploads, if it will just conk out randomly (some 
web platforms do).
