Raw vs JPG


Anthomyia pluvialis

I still not very into this, and honestly I can't see a lot of difference between them (except on the file one is like 3 MB and the RAW is 10MB lol)
I guess I should still be trying and see if i get any results!
Though Is my first RAW Attempt
pcmcgarry Trying raw myself with photoshop cs4 and don't see a great deal of difference between raw and JPG only that JPG is simpler and easier to deal with

MsCumberdale Raw gives me a sense of freedom :) In case of burnt skies I can easily fix it, for example. And a lot of other things too. I recently started too, and at the beginning i didn't see any real difference, but now I wonder why I have waited so long to start taking in raw instead of jpeg :)

Ryana RAW is something like an unfinished picture. All information is in the image, you just have to do the finishing editings in for example: lightroom or photoshop.
RAW files give you so much more freedom with your pictures and how they will look like at the end.

smbunation It depends heavily on how much editing you plan to do with each shot. If you under expose in RAW, you can recover a lot of the information in post. Versus having shot in JPG, it would be more difficult [usually] to achieve the same result.

Another way of looking at it is having a 'flattened' PhotoShop file versus a Photoshop file with a bunch of layers... I hope I didn't just confuse the situation more! Ha!

honzicek I was using RAW for about one year and working with it in Lightroom. About 2 months ago I switched back to JPG.
For me the JPG is much better since it takes less space per photo and is quicker for thansfers and quality.....what can I say....I don't see any difference.
That's just me!
Nice test Ricky

ArtBee "JPEG".... "Raw raw raw"...What's good for one may not be for another! Decide for yourself!

karmankwarner I can not tell the difference either. LOL I will just stick with point and shoot and hope. ;0 Wonderful captures.

????? I'm so glad you posted this, I have been doing some reading on this very subject lately... I can't see any difference either. After reading the comments above, it seems to me that RAW would be better if one does and desires to do quite a bit of editing.... Is this right???
