JPEG vs. RAW.
Most modern digital cameras shoot and save images as JPEG or RAW files. Both have their own advantages and disadvantages, but photographers should use the most appropriate format for their needs — especially because it can affect the editing process. Understand the differences between JPEG and RAW and choose the right file format for your next project.
What is a JPEG file?
A Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) file is a lossy raster file format that compresses an image to make the file smaller. JPEG files are some of the most popular and widely used image formats in the world. Photographers can shoot in JPEG mode, while graphic designers, illustrators and other creatives can edit their work in them.
