Storage space is not free but has become quite cheap.

So, do you keep all your RAWs or select a few?

I keep all my raws, apart from the small number of obvious duds. So even raws I don't process initially are still kept.

Or do you store your photos only as JPGs and with what compression?

I only shoot raws (except on my phone).

I usually keep 10% of the photos from a shoot, edit them, keep those 10% as full-res (after crop) JPGs (75% compression) and 0-1% of the RAWs.

I probably process about 15-20% of the raw images into JPEGs. I typically reduce them to 3000 or 4000 max edge size, 85% compression (of course, I can always re-process the original raw file to get a different size later, if needed). But some I do process full size even initially.

Since i find it hard to put all this in a poll, please comment.
