    I'm new to Aperture and raw photography and I can't find detailed information about the size of combined raw+Jpeg files when imported as a pair.
    When shifting between raw and jpeg master original, the file size obviously change from example 23 mb to 12 mb. But does aperture store one file of 23 mb or 35 mb ?

    I consider only importing Raw, but if the pair Raw+Jpeg doesn't take up more space on internal drive I might prefer the pair.

    Regards Lars.

    Thank you.
    Aperture is also capable of the same.
    Raw only, jpeg only, as a pair or as separate files.
    I thought that the pair might use many of the same storage informations and hence save disk space.
    I think I will import raw only - adjust and fine tune - then if nessesary, export to smaller jpeg with best image quality (12).

    Regards Lars.

    If you're not storing and re-editing, you can likely get by with around 8 for JPEG quality. Take the same image and export as 8, 10 and 12 and look at them side by site or better yet printed and side-by-side and see if you can spot the differences.
