1 - Import module to select RAW/JPEG/BOTH

Most of the cameras allow the user to shoot RAW+ JPEG.

So why not let the import module allow the easy selection of either only RAW images or only JPEG images or both. Should be simple enough.

2- Catalog portability

Backup catalog + photos to a desired location feature?

Are you indicating the "Treat JPEG FIles next to RAW files as separate photos" option?

If yes, that will still import both the RAW and JPEG. What if you wanted to import only the JPEGs. This appears handy for people you use Lightroom as their major picture management library software as well as the editing library.

In 1. I am requesting for selective import of "either" only RAW "or" only JPEG or "both".

If there is an option like that, i will be happy to know about it. If not, my request stands.
