    Beginner tips for raw images: 03 Raw lets you fine-tune your images

    The ability to fine-tune white balance in raw is great for warming- up your portraits

    Most of your camera’s settings, such as white balance, sharpening and saturation, are not applied to a raw file, so you are free to adjust and fine-tune them on your computer.

    raw images also contain much more picture information than JPEGs, especially with regards to tonal range.

    This means that any tonal transitions, particularly in areas of similar tone or colour, are much smoother, and are much less prone to problems like banding and pixelation when any raw adjustments are made.
