Even worse:
After rating all images, I start a batch job, which resizes
all JPGs with "star rating < 4" to 1500 pixel (at the longer
side) and 85 JPG-quality. This way most fotos do take about
200 KByte on my harddisc. ;)
Since I mostly want to "document" events, this is sufficient
for me.

The images with "rating >= 4", are kept in original size.
But I do brightness/color adjustment and other things on the
original files. So the real original JPG is gone in the end.

Of course I keep a few backups along this process!
