Merge Raw and Jpeg #1

I’m aware that it is possible to import both file formats with one or other as a Master. However, over the past few years I’ve often shot both and imported separately. I rarely use the Jpegs and was wondering if it is possible to merge them with the Raws with the latter as Masters.

I have been moving from a managed to a referenced library as I was intending to switch to Lightroom (but now re-considering as mentioned in another post) so don’t know if this makes a difference.

Have I missed the boat by importing separately or is this still possible?

Thanks for any advice,

I dunno, but have you tried auto-stacking them?  It’s not the same as RAW/JPEG pairs, but I don’t think I know how to make those other than on import.

The only time you can create a RAW/JPEG pair is during import. You’d need to export the masters and then reimport as a PAIR. Probably not worth the trouble. Might as well use Andrew’s idea and stack them.

BTW, once you import as a pair you cannot separate them either. You can set to view one or the other but not both. And you cannot get rid of one of a pair either.

Thanks both. I reckon you’re right Thomas, not worth the trouble especially with quite a few thousand pairs. Overall, I’ll stick to my current procedure of importing separately and make more use of stacking.

Thanks again for the responses,
