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.
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?!?!
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.
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!
