This issue got hashed out very thoroughly in thread viewtopic.php?f=57&t=24163 , with 110 replies. No need to repeat any arguments here.
Hi Phil (& Stephen),
this is a bit off-topic, but just to clarify: PSu can
optionally treat RAW+JPG pairs in one and the same version set, which in my opinion is pretty much the same as Lightroom does. Only PSu does not do it automatically
Now, these approaches are not identical, I know, but there is a bit of legacy behind versioning in PSu that I don't think it is a particularly good idea to add an additional option
. In my opinion it would be better to improve how versioning is currently working...
Much discussion in the thread you are pointing to is about renaming problems of NEFs and JPGs jointly as pairs during import.
And you might not necessarily be aware of this: there is now a script that you can use to rename your files in pairs, making sure both files receive the same names: http://repository.idimager.com/openreso ... 2408FCE4B0
The problem here is: it is only one script that assigns the same names to the pair of files. So, while it works for me, it might not necessarily work for you.
Still, I thought I'd point it out...
There are also several tickets in Mantis now to significantly improve versioning. I do hope some of these excellent suggestions will eventually be implemented...
[Sorry, if this is a bit a lengthy deviation from the main topic about using the lightroom/PSu combo.]
