Raw Files


What is Raw Files?

Many pro and semi-pro digital cameras include the option for capturing raw files, which unlike JPEGs, TIFFs, and other file formats contain all of the data captured during the exposure in an unedited format. When processed, raw files can be adjusted far more extensively than images captured in other imaging formats, and can be saved as JPEGs, TIFFs, etc. The original raw file remains unaltered and can be reprocessed at any time for other purposes.
