Screen-Shot-2015-12-01-at-12.19.51This is the subject of discussion since the beginning of digital photography. Am I shooting in Raw? What is raw Raw actually does not stand for anything, as its name suggests, it refers to the raw data emerging from the camera. The important difference is that raw files are uncompressed and untouched, while JPEG file formats are compressed and edited within the camera itself. Raw files capture data using the whole camera sensor and then the image output because it is also moving forward to larger file sizes. JPEG files usually output at lower quality because the camera processes the information, adds color and then compresses it to everyone in the final image

Raw files are very worthless unless you plan to edit them later. They are meant to be as elaborate and flat as possible, so all you can change as you like. With JPEG files, you can use them as soon as they are exported from the camera because they have already been edited, if you have a RAW file then the color and exposure level can be very difficult. .

Editing JPEG files is considered as destructive editing, due to the fact that you are overlaying the previous information that has been overwritten with new information. With RAW files, the original data is not actually being edited. You are going through the process of exporting raw data manually to JPEG, that the camera will usually use automatically, having raw files will give you much more potential and flexibility in editing that you have with the JPEG file Will happen.

It is not right or wrong to come in the file format to use it. It depends on how much you want to work in images and how happy you are. File size, I told it briefly earlier and this is one of the reasons that some may choose to use one on each other since there is no compression with raw files, so size is much higher than JPEG files. However, if you are serious about photography, you should choose quality and detail every time you save space. Think about it, with RAW files, you can convert them to JPEG at any time but you can not do it in another way.
