At the top of the Export page set Export to: Hard Drive.
Next line down set Export to: Same folder as original photo.
If you want the jpgs to be imported into LR, tick the Add to This Catalog box.
Middle of the page, set jpg format, quality, color space.
Set your export type to Hard Disk and export to a folder on your hard-drive, and optionally re-import those exported JPGs using a checkbox on the Export panel.
When I do exports like this I typically put them in a subfolder of the raw files rather than physically mixed into the raw files, themselves. If I want to see the raws and jpgs mixed together I can just enable Show Photos in Subfolders.
yep; as above.
I just made an export preset then its just a click away
Thanks all - I knew there had to be a way. This really helps my workflow - Thanks for the seperate folder item also, I will use it!
