I shoot a lot of RAW+JPEG, which LR imports as a RAW plus a JPEG sidecar. Importing them as separate images does not suit my needs.
What I'd like to do is have a keystroke at my disposal which would take the selected RAW+JPEG images and change them to JPEG+RAW (JPEG image with a RAW sidecar).
Another keystroke would revert the situation to normal (RAW file with a JPEG sidecar).
I can program Java, C++, Perl on my sleep, but never touched Lua. How hard is it to do something like this? I would appreciate any pointers on what's needed.
Unfortunately, LR doesn't have the ability to import a JPEG with the raw as a sidecar or to swap the roles of a JPEG and raw once imported.
If you describe more about your workflow and why having them as separate images doesn't suit your needs, we might be able to suggest alternate means of getting to the same (or similar) end.
