Storage space is not free but has become quite cheap.

So, do you keep all your RAWs or select a few? Or do you store your photos only as JPGs and with what compression?

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.

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

I voted for "keep all", but am actually somewhere in between.

For once in a lifetime experiences, I keep all the RAWs except for the most miserable failures -- inadvertent shots of my feet, shots that are *totally* out of focus, and such. I edit/export (as JPG) about 10% of them, maybe a bit more.

For everyday shots close to home, I am much more ruthless about culling RAWs.  I might keep about 10% of them, and the vast majority of survivors get edited/exported.
