1. Explain the main differences between a raw and jpeg file.
A RAW file contains all the uncompressed and unprocessed image data captured by the sensors of a digital camera or scanner. They’re also a type of raster file format, but one that maintains lossless quality. RAW files are not images — they’re just large files filled with the image data as it was captured.
2. Which file is bigger RAW or Jpeg?
- RAW files contain all the data captured by the camera’s sensor and offer greater flexibility in post-processing but are much larger in size than JPEGs.
- JPEG files are smaller in size and offer less flexibility in post-processing. They require less storage space, making them ideal for sharing online or printing smaller images.
3. Can you change a Raw file to a Jpeg, once your photos are the computer? How?
Yes, you can change a raw file to a jpeg. To make a raw file a jpeg use a photo editing software like photoshop go to File > Save As or File > Export and choose JPEG as the format.
4. If you were shooting an important event, would you shoot it RAW or Jpeg? Explain.
If I were shooting an important event I would shoot at jpeg. I would shoot jpeg because it is faster and uses less storage.
