Which format  adobe RGB (1998) or sRGB IEC61966-2.1 is best for filing? Raw or Jpeg. When I load photoes from my nikon D700 or leica M8, to Aperture I get these 2 formats, do I have to keep them both or can I delite one of the versions in my library to save space?

MacBook Pro (15-inch Early 2008), Mac OS X (10.7.4), Mac OS X version 10.7.4

    Are you shooting RAW+JPEG?  Because otherwise what you're asking doesn't really make sense... you shouldn't have a different file for each color space.

    In 99% of cases you want the RAW file.

     

    Can I ask why you're shooting RAW+JPEG?  In general, unless you have a very specific workflow (i.e. shooting 2000 shots for a sporting event, and getting them to an editor), a RAW-only workflow makes a lot more sense than RAW+JPEG because with Aperture you can create a JPEG from the RAW any time you want.

     

    So keep the RAW file.  But Aperture will import them both, and managing that takes more work and effort unless you have a very specific reason for shooting RAW+JPEG.
