    I'm a recent convert to RAW and have been shooting Christmas, New Years and such in this lovely format. Only problem is the CR2 files generated are starting to make a dent in my HDD space.
    Is there a way to rip an independent JPEG from the RAW file once I've finished processing them? I've tried just removing the .CR2 files but iPhoto wouldn't show a detailed JPEG so I've put them back for now.

    RAW images are much better the JPG file format; but they do take a lot space, during the soccer seasons I take a few thousand pictures, so yeah, space. I recommend a NAS or better yet a server in RAID format. Drives are super cheap so space isn't bad. BUT putting an iPhoto library on a server just doesn't work great.
