As far as I understood Daniel he does NOT want to have the jpgs inside LR, additionally to the CR2s or DNGs.
So he should untick the setting "treat jpgs as separate images", in order to have LR ignore them during import.
"do not import suspected duplicates" should be ticked in import dialog.
Each DSLR now a days comes with an option to save shoot RAW+JPG.
However importing them as DNG+ JPG is not agood option because it wastes lot of memory and at any point of process in Lightroom you can export the JPG or any other format out of LR like png for the same.
However the DNG files would make sure they keep the exact attributes of the RAW files and the quality intact.
You are correct. I still want the CR2 + JPG option turned on on the camera.
When I import the photos, and select Convert CR2 to DNG, I just want the DNG to be stored on the storage, not DNG "AND" JPG. ", for the reasons Mandhir mentioned. I can get export the jpegs out from DNG lossless.
When I read you post I swore I thought that was the answer.
I looked at the option you just mentioned, under Lightroom Preferences - General tab - Import Options - Treat JPEG files next to raw files as separate photos.
It was unticked already... back to the drawing board..
It's got to be something simple like unticking something.....
Thank you all for helping me, by the way.
