Excellent reply johnrellis! - I was just typing the steps myself when yours popped up!

By the way , there is a shortcut tothe filters. Whe you are in the Library module with the grid -all photos visible  - you can press the backslash key and the filters appear below the menu!

The other way you might also consider is to make a Smart Collection. Attributes is “File Type” is JPEG. Then if others are imported or whatever, you’ll have a quick place to locate them and of course if desired, delete them.

I wonder how the described methods would work if you have been shooting RAW+JPEG.

Normally LR doesn't show you the JPEGs unless you've ticked the prefs box to display them as seperate images.

 

I once did shoot RAW+JPEG by mistake and deleted the JPEGs after import in the Finder. This caused LR to complain about missing sidecar files. I now know I should have ticked the prefs box and re-syncronised the folder to separate the files in the catalog first 🙂

Andrew,

 

I know there is the "splat delete" CMD-OPT-SHIFT-DEL to delete images from the catalog when in a Smart Collection.  Do you know of a similar command to only remove images from the catalog when in a Smart Collection?

Do Photo > Remove Photo From Catalog.  (See the menu for the keyboard shortcut.)

"Now I just have to remember it!!!!!"

 

That's why I always give instructions using the menu commands whenever possible. It encourages people to explore for other commands and gives a convenient place to find keyboard shortcuts (easier than the Help menu).

You can also save the current filter settings as a preset to make it easy to call up again. Click on the dropdown menu on the right end of the filter bar:

 

Untitled.png

 

Using the filter bar has some advantages over a smart collection: You can easily filter individual folders or collections to find the contained JPEGs. And using delete/backspace to delete photos from a folder works the same as in an unfiltered folder (it's a little awkward in a smart collection).

 

Using a smart collection has some advantages: You don't need to expand stacks first to find JPEGs buried inside stacks. And you can instantly see the count of JPEGs in the entire catalog without invoking the smart collection.
