I regularly import from my iPhone Photos app to Lightroom Classic. I started my archive in standalone Lightroom and my iPhone pictures go back to 2011. That's why today I set out to import all my phone photos and videos, so I could clear them from the phone to max out my photo space for an upcoming trip.
Unfortunately, I wound up with a lot of doubles, with LrC's import duplicating 2000+ images, in HEIC format. The HEIC are not only about half the file size, I see better detail than in the JPG images that were imported years ago.
I'm tempted to want to keep the HEIC in my archive, even though I still get trouble trying to use HEIC files in 'the real world.' But, How can I easily identify and select the original JPG versions that are the doubles of my new imports? Before I realized the difference in file size and quality, I was simply selecting and removing the doubles manually, via Previous Import, in the Navigator. I would click on a photo, Go To It In The Finder, make my comparisons, and set as Rejected any duplicates.
But this has been deleting the newly imported HEIC versions. Are there any ways, besides manually, to batch select the duplated JPGs, instead?
