    matching jpeg to raw file

      I have a catalogue with 1200 images edited down to 300. The files are jpegs and now my client wants high-res from all 300 images. Is it possible to match the jpegs to the RAW files without doing this manually ?

          Are the RAW files in the catalog now? How did you "edit down"?

          Tip for future: do all your work on the RAW file in the first place, then Export JPEGs at whatever size or quality needed for Preview, then TIFF for finals, when culled down further.

            I always work with jpegs because it is much faster this way while working on my laptop. OI usually only export a small number of full size tiffs once my client has made a selection. In this case however I have just found out my client needs full size tiffs from all the edited pictures ( I put the jpegs in one folder and raw files in another, importing only the jpegs ). I just wanted to find if there was any way of matching the file numbers from my jpegs to those of the raw files so that I could then import only the raw files I need without having to work through the entire edit in the raw folder.

              Perhaps just dumping the RAW into the folder, synching, and then sorting by shoot time would do the trick?

                If you have a list of file numbers, you can try pasting the list into a smart collection:

                Filename / Contains / 1234 4554 4554 5454
