What is easier way of importing 2-300 photos at one time (not one-at-a-time)  RM6   Thank you

There really isn't a way. It's one at a time.

From RM7 Help > Working with Media:

If you have a lot of images to add to a media album, you can also drag and drop those items into RootsMagic's media album all at once.  You can then select them one at a time in the album to add the caption or description, or to tag them to other records.

You could import all into the Media Gallery by selecting them all in Windows File Explorer and drag'n'drop into the Media Gallery. But they have yet to be tagged to anything in your tree. If you have multiple images for a person, you could select that person in the main view, and then open the Media Album for that person. Drag'n'drop all his/her files from File Explorer into the person's Media Album and they are auto-tagged to that person. If you want the same images tagged to other things, people then you add these tags one at a time.

 

This feature is unavailable in RM6, having been added in RM7.
