I was wonder which would be better to use JPEG or RAW. I edit my photos on PS8 Also if I try to burn a RAW file ontoa CD (which I do with JPEG's to bring in photos to the local newspaper) is that the same a saving a JPEG ona CD.

As you can tell I don't know alot of technical stuff about these formats.

You wouldn't want to take a raw image to a newspaper or photofinisher. Raw is proprietary and they are different between manufacturers. JPG and TIFF are pretty much universal.

But if you take the pictures in raw you should archive them that way. Raw usually has greater bit depth and more information. You can also make settings like white balance, sharpening, contrast etc on the computer just as if you are doing it in the camera. The camera just takes the raw image and applies the filters with internal computer processors -–you can do the same thing out of the camera. Shooting raw you need be concerned only with composition, exposure and focus while actually shooting. If you make settings in JPG they can't easily be reversed.

My camera came with RAW to JPEG or TIFF oftware. Check the manufacrurer's website.

If you have an editting software, such as Photoshop CS or Elements 3.0, you can import RAW and Save As JPEG or TiFF.



Paint Shop Pro may import RAW. I don't know.
