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.

some years ago i had the "brilliant" idea to keep only 3MP JPGs to save some Harddisk space. My idea was, there's still enough resolution to crop the photo a little bit if i ever wanted to and it would still be enough to fit a FHD (2MP) screen...

I do regret this now, because today i have a 4K monitor (8MP) and those photos don't have the resolution i want. Luckily i still have RAWs of the very best photos, but flicking through my old photos is not as enjoyable on 4K as it could be...
