I am trying to develop a more formalized workflow for my pics. At this time, photography is a hobby, not a profession (although that could change when I retire). My current view on the flow is to ingest with Image Ingester, catalog with Media Pro, and create any derivatives with Lightroom. Right now, I am doing things the old fashioned way with folders that are event oriented and very heirarchical in structure.

I have a few questions for some of the more experienced folk ...
1) After editing pictures in Lightroom and updating the side car with metadata, can Media Pro display new pictures or will it go back to the original RAW file?
2) After placing RAW files in DNG folders, do you literally delete the original files?
3) Currently, I have my camera set to generate a JPG file alongside the RAW file. As a result I have two of every pic. Would I be better served to just shoot in RAW and create a full size JPG when I convert to DNG?

Appreciate any and all advice/comments. Thanks in advance ...
