I have many casual travel shots taken with a high resolution camera. I want to take the shots with high resolution because I'm not sure on beforehand if I want to print big or crop.
After reviewing the shots and having marked the ones I would like to keep in high resolution, I now want to downsample all the rest to 6MP in Lightroom because I have limited disk space for storing.
I know that Lightroom is not built for this and tried to prevent me from overwriting source, but I need to downsample and overwrite source because I have very limited disk space, and I'm shooting thousands of images a week at an extremely high resolution.
My current involves exporting to a different folder and then manually overwriting the source files. However, this has the negative side effect of getting conflicts with the meta data.
Do you have a better workflow for doing this? Thanks.
