Default Bibble for Raw Processing and Photoshop for editing

I shot .jpg for about a year getting used to the camera controls, but after going to a RAW processor...I'll never go back.

Maybe I'm just a shitty photographer, but I almost always want to adjust the exposure or white balance, or saturation, or something when I take pictures. RAW and a good RAW processor lets you do that to a much greater extent and without loss in quality. All those photos with burnt highlights are lost shadows are something you can usually save with RAW.

I really like these tools...let me know if you try either and have any questions.

Intersting, could you post 2 pictures, 1 with .jpg, and the other RAW, so that those of us with less experience could see the difference as well?

The difference is about pre and post processing.

Raw is totally uncompressed files. When u take a photo, the cameras processor does its own compression making jpg. In RAW shooting it does absolutely nothing to the shot, leaving it to what u do yourself in photoshop or editor, but its also HUGE. It will easily cut the amt. of photos u can take in half easily.

Basically, u can change exposure, color saturation, levels much more accurately and balanced with a raw shot. Very good for "Pro" shots. Not good for snapshots cause u get the best when u play with it (unless u want to edit 400+ photos )
