Merged

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Capability to display embedded preview or sidecar Jpeg

This is a feature request to get this modified:

1. If this box is checked then I have twice the photos in my catalog
2. If the box is unchecked then I do not have access to the JPEG

What makes sense is if you check the box to been able to use the X-Y tool to compare the raw vs the JPG and the ability to keep the JPG as the primary, maybe even the option to erase either the raw or the JPG.

If I shoot raw+JPG in my camera I want the ability to keep the JPG if the camera did a decent or good job and only develop the raw image for the more promising or worse images.

Seems like Lightroom to me, given the tools and preferences...

I went ahead and voted for this feature, even though I don't shoot raw+jpg, just because I think Adobe needs to give handling of related photos more thought. I think something far more robust is in order, like this one - you have to read down a ways, since it was a merged thing that subsequently evolved and matured:

It covers jpg/raw relationship, master/virtual relationships, hdr/pano grouping, bursts, projects, .............
