Making TIFF and RAW files appropriate for presentations

Today’s life seems to be convenience-oriented. We prefer to use handy, though not heavy equipment; there are technical devices able to complete the tasks that used to be possible with humans only; new devices are much smaller, but more effective than they used to be. Similar thing happens to the image formats. When we take pictures, especially if we talk about professional photography, we have to use “professional” image formats like RAW or TIFF. As a result, the image files created are of really high quality, but of a very large size. They are not portable: we cannot upload them to the web; we cannot send them by email, and in general, they are more awkward for image editing than other image formats that compress the photos. There are two ways to make your images less bulky: one of them is to convert them to JPEG . JPEG is able to keep the highest possible image quality, though it’s a lossy format that makes RAW and TIFF images applicable for the web. Another option is to convert images to PDF. PDF is known to be able to make the image look exactly the same no matter where it is displayed. PDF is very good at saving images with text thus making the files appropriate for any presentation.
