Andrew in Massachusetts asks:
A raw files storage question: I shoot many bracketed photos at each property. This gives me the option to use HDR on certain photos and to optimize exposure in general. The problem is the proliferation of raw files--a real storage problem. On a larger property, I may narrow down 160 shots to just 30 finished images. I would like to save for the future all the raw files that are linked to the images I processed and exported, but discard the unused and unlinked raw files. Is there a simple way of just eliminating those raw files that were edited or used in HDR (Lightroom HDR)? The only way I have found is to laboriously go through each array of images and eliminate all images that do not have editing symbols in the lower right corner.
As you go through your workflow deciding which images from the shoot you are going to use, mark the unused images rejected as shown in the video above. After you've finished your HDR processing and finishing, delete all the rejected images.
I don't think there is a way to automatically delete all your unprocessed images. I could be wrong. Does anyone else have suggestions?
