I don’t think you can do this, and I wouldn’t necessarily agree that JPGs are better to judge improvability. I suppose it’s possible someone has written a plug-in that allows both files to be deleted when you delete the JPG of the pair but I wouldn’t hold your breath.
You can filter by file type. But I agree that making decisions about keepers based on the JPEG probably isn't the best idea.
Thanks for the responses. The scenario is downloading 100 pictures of kids and family around the house and this happens every week. I want to download them, throw away images that are not sharp enough to meet my level of satisfaction, upload them to smugmug.and be done, but only for now. The raw images are for down the road in case I want to create wall art or use raw images in the future. If the image doesn't look good in JPG and I have alternatives then I want to toss it. I'm not a photographer, just someone who wants to document his life with pictures and video, so I do disagree that using RAW is the best option for me.
see jpg when have jpg+raw wrote:
I want to view the JPG files after import when I am deciding to keep or discard both the JPG+RAW images. JPG is better for me when determining the potential of improving on it later with the raw image.
There are many Lr users who wish Adobe would provide better support for jpegs in the raw+jpeg combo.
As it stands, your choices are:
1. treat as one (the raw), in which case jpg is completely inaccessible in Lr, or
2. treat separately, in which case the raw+jpeg relationship is completely severed and forgotten..
Most of the time, neither of these options is ideal.
There are plugins that can help (e.g. RawPlusJpeg, free by me), but it's a compromise/work-around for the support that really should be native, in my opinion.
That said, the plugin does have a function to delete (or import, or swap..) raw corresponding to imported jpg.
