I understand the idea of jpegs just for browsing, especially in this era of lightroom where the RAW browsing software tends to be so dog slow and or involved with catalogue building etc.

For what it's worth, there are RAW applications that can browse RAW files as fast as most jpeg viewers. (Breezebrowser for example)

FastStone image viewer is another, I only shoot RAW

Which is why applications that display the embedded jpeg of a raw file are so useful. Things like FastStone and IrfanView are great for rapidly stepping through the contents of a card, deleting the obvious duds.

It saves a load of time that would otherwise be spent transferring those duds from the card and importing them into Lightroom.

They're also very handy for grabbing a quick 'n' dirty jpeg from a raw file, especially for forum posts. I just open the raw file in FastStone, resize, 'Save As' then drag and drop to my FTP folder. About 20 seconds to get a forum-ready image.

Just downloaded and tried FastStone. Fantastic product. Thanks for the tips.

I use Breeze Browser Pro for this. I never could accept the Adobe recommendation that you download the entire contents of the card to LR, wait for it to make previews and then delete the losers. Based on this approach, the thumbnails on the Import page in LR 1 and 2 were less than useless, you couldn't make any judgement about the contents of a card before downloading. BBP gave me very fast full-screen images, 1:1 or larger views, on-screen comparison of up to four images, easy marking of the winners, and delivery of the marked images to LR's Import dialog. In LR3 they finally woke up and improved the Import page, but I have retained the habit of making BBP my first stop.

RAW and small JPG, so I don't need to do anything for 'facebook shots' or sharing snapshots via e-mail. I only keep the RAW long term.

I shoot raw 95% of the time. Only exceptions are certain events in which the need to post process is not there. Though sadly, my hard drive(s) hate me for shooting Raw.

I shoot RAW only. Browse photos in explorer w/ preview pane(MS camera codec pack installed). If I want to instant share I'll in camera process then copy from CF(primary save location) to my micro SD card inside of my PQI aircard(secondary/vide​o save location) which I can pull off via wifi w/ my phone.

RAW all the time, then import all of them into Lr and view/edit/delete from there.

RAW only. I guess I have more patience than some here, combined with only doing this as a hobby. Since I rarely have more than 40 or 50 images to load at one time, I don't worry about the time it takes to bring them all into LR. I start the upload, then just do something else while they transfer. I rarely store any jpegs. I just export them from LR as needed.

I was RAW only, now Im RAW on CF, Jpeg Medium on SD. The setup is for instant access to the images via EyeFi.

The jpegs are so small it's a useless microoptimization to not take and keep them.

I don't use dpp, so sometimes I want Canon's idea of a jpeg for blending, especially the noise reduction.


My imagine composition sucks. I need a heavier lens.

I shoot jpegs only when I am breaking in a new camera.
Once I am shooting for real, I switch to RAW only unless I am doing something that requires I specifically have instant access to a jpeg.

I understand the idea of jpegs just for browsing, especially in this era of lightroom where the RAW browsing software tends to be so dog slow and or involved with catalogue building etc.

For what it's worth, there are RAW applications that can browse RAW files as fast as most jpeg viewers. (Breezebrowser for example)

Is there a reason for this or is this just something you do as a preference?
