You can do all of that from inside of lightroom, which is why I find it so odd when people complain about lightrooms default import settings. It's quite simple: Plug card into card reader,
click "import" in Lr,
select destination drive in right hand panel,
right click to create new folder,
if you want to create a sub-folder click the sub-folder option in Lr and give it an appropriate name,
click "import". Done. IMO, faster and easier than doing it outside of Lr and then importing it into Lr.
+1^. I import, organize, edit, delete all within LR. If I need them in a new folder, sub-folder, specific file names, etc. I just create it on the right-hand panel upon initial import.
