    Import "Copy as DNG" not for JPG?

    RobMikeMom Level 1

      I am using Lightroom CC, the trial edition. I noticed that I CAN convert my camera's JPG files to DNG with the Export process, but it seems that I CANNOT do the "Copy as DNG" during Import. Is this by design? I figured if it would let me Export my JPGs to DNG, why wouldn't it let me convert on Import?


      I have read that there are reasons I would want to convert my camera's JPG files to DNG for processing, even though I know they won't be RAW files, so I wanted to do it on Import. My camera doesn't do RAW - I never worried about it before because I wasn't processing my pictures beyond minor tweaking. Rest assured that my next camera will do RAW files!

       

      Thank you,
