Currently I'm shooting everything in RAW so I have most data to work with in post processing. Then for many shots I'd use Joseph's “Convert Master File Format” script to convert my versions to JPEG's and automatically import them again, and reject the RAW files so I can trash them.
If the photos are really great, I keep the RAW files around and in Aperture 3 - without first converting them to JPEG.
For snapshots and other average stuff, I'd like to just keep the JPEG version(s) - like I do now, using the script mentioned above.
However, I've been thinking, maybe I should at least keep my RAW files somewhere, just in case… I'd just like to keep them out of Aperture 3, especially because I'm using a Managed Library on my MacBook Pro (I'm out and about quite often so having to rely on an external drive with my library, is going to be a hassle for me).
Any ideas as to how I can pull my rejected RAW files (those converted to JPEG using Joseph's AppleScript) out of Aperture 3 so I can use the Finder to back them up on an external drive / server somewhere?
I guess I *could* just backup my entire SD card each time after import, but then I would also keep the photos I'd otherwise delete in Aperture, blurry shots, lens cap shots and stuff like that.
Does this make any sense? :)
