Filters not being followed when copying

I've imported lots of RAWs and jpgs from my camera using Bridge.

From there, I want to split the RAWs into a sub folder and then start culling the jpgs.

I use the filter so I can select only RAWs - then I do ctrl-A to select all the RAW files and then move to my RAWs folder.

I do this - check the correct number of files are selected - but find that it's copied most of the jpgs too.  It doesn;t seem to be respecting the filter settings.

Filter panel is working as expected: it only shows/hides files (i.e, not affect any settings). Bridge treats raws+JPEGs with same name as a paired file. Hence, filter settings has no effect when you filter then drag files to another folder. However, it doesn't treat JPEGs+raws with same name as a paired file! You can argue that's a bug, but since cameras record raws+JPEGs, not JPEGs+raws, logic appears OK to me, though obscure. I say cameras though I can check only Nikons.

Note - just updated to Bridge 2024 and exactly the same thing.  It says I've selected 233 out of 466 files, then I move them to the RAWs folder...  Check the RAWs folder and I have 466 files in the RAWs folder - all the jpgs and the RAWs.

... If I then select all the jpgs in the RAWs folder and move them back... it copies only the jpgs.  EH?!?!

Any ideas?

We've asked many times for an option to treat raws+JPEGs with same name as separate files but there's no movement (maybe Bridge team can comment if watching).

 

I suggest you select all the JPEGs, batch rename by adding a character(s), then when done remove the character(s) using string substitution. That way, JPEGs won't follow when you move raws.

Hi Shangara, thanks for taking the time to explain really well.  I agree, there is a logic there... if not obvious. 

I think I just need to flip the approach and move jpgs rather than RAWs.  I can create a jpgs subfolder, filter the jpgs and drag them into the subfolder.

The only reason to split is that I'll usually then cull a bit and copy the jpgs into Lightroom CC - leaving the RAWs outside LR on my SSD.  After a few months I'll typically delete them all from my SSD and just use LR as file storage (with local backup in LR ecosystem).

 

 Thanks again for the help!
