But before downloading these RAW backgrounds, let’s understand RAW image format and the difference between RAW and JPEG. If you are a designer then which could be the best format for you.
And we will also see the advantages of RAW and jpeg so that you can easily decide whether you need to download these backgrounds or not because this file is really huge.
deference between RAW & JPEG
Start with the raw format
raw images are basically an uncompressed version of your images, its means it contains all the information that camera sensor collects when you took a photo
And if you are a graphic designer then you can take a huge advantage of raw images because you have a lot more information on the shadows, highlights, color balance, etcetera.
And you can also recover overexposed and underexposed photos much better than you can do it with JPEG photos.
And on the other hand, the JPEG format is a compressed version of your images, so there is not much information compared to raw images. Jpeg images are processed files by the camera software settings, that you chosen for your images.
But the raw format is not for everyone. lemme show you some advantages of raw and jpeg, so you can decide which format is for you
Advantages of JPEG
JPEG file format is accessible all over the world without any processing. it's accepted by all the web pages and mobile devices
jpeg files are ready to go files, which means you can instantly share your jpeg image on your social media platforms, or send someone to email, WhatsApp or etcetera.
Due to post-processing, jpeg files are smaller, allowing you to take a lot of photos
Advantages of RAW
This is the reason why the size of the raw image is very large. There is a lot of information inside the raw files. Such as shadows, highlights, contrast, and more
When you make adjustments to a RAW file, you’re not actually doing anything to the original data.
What you’re doing is creating a set of instructions for how the JPEG or TIFF version should be saved.
The awesomeness of this is that you never ever have to worry about ruining an image, accidentally saving it over, or being unable to go back and make changes.
You can always reset your adjustments, and start over again. JPEG files lose quality every time you open them, make adjustments, and save them again.
So if you’re making edits to JPEGs you always have to be duplicating the image and saving out a new version
Jpeg images are 8-bit files, this means that JPG files have 256 shades of red, green, and blue, so basically 16 million colors which is a big number.
But raw files can be 12 bit or 14-bit files. The 12-bit raw files contain 4096 shades of reds, greens, and blues, and there are approximately 68 billion colors so there is a lot more information inside the raw files.
and 14-bit raw files it's even bigger it contains more than 4 trillion colors so that's crazy huge numbers
Unlike JPEG images that can be easily manipulated, RAW images can be used as proof of your ownership and authenticity of the photo.
If you have seen something strange and you have a RAW image to prove it, no one will be able to argue that you have manipulated the image in Photoshop.
