I’ve recently been playing with Raw+Jpeg on my DSLRs while testing the new HP Photosmart A626 Compact Printer, which enables me to insert my memory card directly into the unit, view the pictures on its large LCD, then output up to 5″x7″ prints. Since the HP (and other direct printers of its ilk) can’t process Raw files, I’ve been shooting Raw+Jpeg so I can have my cake and eat it too.
The problem is, after I’ve had my fun printing out snapshots, Aperture grabs both the Raw files and the Jpegs off my card during upload and stores them on my hard drive. I’d just as soon Aperture upload only the Raws and ignore the Jpegs — they’ve already served their purpose.
If you’re shooting Raw+Jpeg for some specific reason and are using Aperture to manage your library, let me know your approach.
