OK, for a while, I was taking pictures in both JPEG and RAW at the same time. I have since just moved over completely to raw and learned the errors of my ways. :)

I'd like to identify, remove, and delete all the extraneous JPEGs from my library that have identically named .CR2 (Canon's RAW) extension. While I know I can do this from the Finder with a variety of methods (I'm a Mac guy) I was wondering if anyone had some creative ways to do this in Lightroom.

Thanks!

Joshua, what I do is select a folder within LR/library view and then sort by "file extension", it is then easy to select the jpegs and delete them. This would work in All Photographs as well.
