    Raw Images: 10 things every beginner must know before ditching JPEG

    Many cameras allow you to manually convert raw images in camera, enabling you to share or print the images

    Beginner tips for raw images: 01 All images in your camera start life as raw images

    When you fire the shutter, the image is recorded on your camera’s sensor, where the light is converted into an electrical signal that forms the image data.

    It’s then combined with the information needed to build the image and written to your memory card.

    With a JPEG, however, before the image is written to the card, the original raw data is processed. How it’s processed depends on what camera settings you’ve chosen.

    The file is then converted to JPEG format and finally written to your memory card.

    Your camera produces raw images, but it’s up to you whether you let it process these for you into a JPEG or stick with a raw file.
