Raw + Jpeg mistake #1

I accidentally had my camera on Raw + Jpeg and didn’t realize it until I imported both.  I have changed the original to be the raw version but how can I isolate the jpeg images and delete only them? Thanks in advance for your help.

Easiest IMO if they’re still on the card and you’ve not done any post processing yet is to delete them from A3 and reimport, selecting one type only. If not still on card, use filter on type in A3 to select the ones you don’t want, and delete (think you’d have to unstack all first if using stacks). Steve

I was hoping for an easy way to isolate the jpegs and delete them but took your advice and  just re-imported only the Raw images. 

Thanks for your quick response.

I know you solved your problem but in case someone else has a similar issue and can’t reimport… There’s no way to get rid of the JPEG masters of a RAW/JPEG pair. Well, there is the brute force method of digging into your library package to find the JPEGs and deleting them manually. I wouldn’t recommend this. I haven’t tried it but I suspect Aperture will only complain when you select JPEG as Master from the menu and it will show as offline.
