    Beginner tips for raw images: 08 Raw images offer non- destructive editing

    The non-destructive nature of raw means that you can return to an image and tweak its sharpening

    When you save a JPEG or single-layer TIFF image after editing, all the data from the original file is discarded and re-written.

    So once you have closed the image, all of the original data is lost.

    When you edit a raw file, the new settings are stored alongside the original data.

    These settings can be inside the file, or stored in a separate file, which is used by the editing software to remember your last settings.

    So you can adjust your original setting indefinitely.
