Do you separate RAW photo's from jpeg?

    I shoot with two cameras. A Sony Cybershot W55 which shoots .jpeg and a Canon 400D which shoots RAW. At the moment my library has all the photo's mixed together but I'm wondering if anyone out there splits up their photo's into jpegs and RAW photo's or if they treat them the same?

    I rarely shoot in jpeg anymore, but i still keep the original RAW's in an external HD and export the final versions as 8-bit tiffs into iPhoto.

    Jpeg doesn't work for me as i frequently edit and re-save the same photos and that would lead to quality loss from the compression.

    So to answer your question i personally don't treat RAW's the same with jpeg or tiff. However there is no wrong or right thing to do, so if you are comfortable and efficient with your workflow then i see no reason to change it.
