I'm working on relearning some of my Lightroom skills after a long hiatus and am using a Mac. On a recent photo shoot, I realized I had RAW(Canon CR2) and JPG capture set. Fortunately, I didn't just have JPG set!! Obviously I'd prefer to just import the RAW files to work on and store in the cloud.
When I click to "add photos", from my SD card, it shows all the photos (both RAW and JPG), but I can't see an obvious way to filter the window so I only import the RAW photos. There are over 1,000 photos on the card, so individual selction will take a long time.
Does anyone know how I can set it up to only import the RAW files and skip the JPG files? If there isn't a way, is there an easy way to do this, post-import?
You can filter on file extension (type 'extension' in the search field) after you imported them all. So filter on .jpg and then delete all those images again. If you have other jpeg images in Lightroom that you do not want to delete, then import into a new album so you can filter in that particular album, or filter by date as well.
