I’ve been an avid Aperture user and I am getting ready for a transition to LR. In Aperture, I would import using RAW+JEPG (using JPEG as the original). My reason (I believe I learned this from Robert Boyer) was because out of the camera with no processing, JPEG generally looks better than RAW. Hence, during the early stages of organization… you get a better idea of the quality of the photo looking at the JPEG.
Aperture binds the RAW + JPEG originals to each photo, and allows you to switch between the two at ease. I would switch to RAW before doing any image editing because of the increased latitude available.
What should I expect in Lightroom? Will both the JPEG and RAW originals transfer over? Will they be associated with one photo, or will they be two separate photos? Should I switch 100% of my photos over to “RAW as Original” within aperture before changing over?
I *THINK* that LR does not bind them together… and as a result, I will switch to an “only RAW” workflow. I’ll live with that restriction, but I want to make the transition as easy and error free as possible.
