Hi Adobe community. My name is Joseph; I run the website that used to be ApertureExpert (please, hold back your tears), currently branded as PhotoApps.Expert.
I've converted to Lightroom, but one of the biggest missing features for me and many others is a viable RAW+JPEG workflow. I've spoken to folks at Adobe about it and they don't believe it's a feature their customers need or want. I'm rallying to change their mind.
If this is something you're interested in seeing, please go to "Petitioning Adobe to Add RAW+JPEG Support to Lightroom | PhotosApps.Expert" and comment there to "sign" the petition. Adobe will see it and hopefully this will encourage them to add the feature.
If you're not sure why anyone would want this, please do read that post. I go into detail on a variety of reasons to shoot both RAW and JPEG — who knows, you might become a convert yourself!
Thanks a ton,
Adobe maintains another forum for gathering user feedback: Recently active topics in Photoshop Family about Photoshop Lightroom. While product developers rarely participate here, they do read every post in that forum. Users vote on topics and add their own opinions. While Adobe, like most companies, only acts on a small fraction of the feedback, the forum has definitely influenced Adobe over the past four years. You might consider redirecting your petition to the feedback forum, where it will get widespread visibility among LR users and where Adobe might be more likely to notice it.
