The art of RAW conversion

RAW is the name given to an image file type that records image data captured by the camera’s image sensor without any processing. RAW files are becoming very popular in digital photography workflows because they offer creative professionals greater creative control. RAW images need to be processed by the dedicated software before manipulating with image-editing software. In this case, there is no deterioration of image quality when being saved, so you can edit and save the image multiple times until you are satisfied with it. However, cameras can use many different RAW formats – the specifications for which are not publicly available. It means that not every RAW file can be read by a variety of software applications. As a result, the use of these proprietary RAW files as a long-term archival solution carries risk, and sharing these files across complex workflows is even more challenging.
