comment Using different Lightroom catalogues for Import and Export?
Thanks. Certainly something I would adopt for any RAWs I take from now on. But, what do I do with my existing images for which I have only JPEGs, and what would I do with any new JPEG-only images (e.g. I shoot JPEG only at motorsport events for faster FPS). Would you suggest that I don't use LR at all to catalog/categorise images for which I have JPEG only and no corresponding RAW?

Many of my older images are JPG only, so are effectively 'finished product'. I generally won't want to edit them further, but want to catalog them. In my mind, it feels 'right' to keep them away from those which have RAW sources. In my film days, I used to keep negatives filed separately from the prints, so I suppose I'm using the same analogy of 'unprocessed film and negs in the darkroom and the finished prints in indexed albums'. The JPG-only catalog is the indexed album set. I'm a newbie to LR, and very open to suggestions that could clear my perhaps cluttered mind!

Hi Mike. In part, yes. I like the idea of handling RAWs independently. The question remains, will LR pick up the metadata/tags etc. from my JPEG exports from raw when importing into the 'jpeg master' catalogue, and how much of that data will be stored in the actual jpeg file (for potential access by other software and tools).
