Do you know about file formats for your photos?
Smartphones sure have come a long way. It used to be that only DSLR’s could shoot RAW images, but not anymore.
JPG and RAW are two file formats that your smartphone can shoot in. What’s the difference? JPG is typically the default image format and is processed by default by your phone. You snap the image and the camera edits it to look its best. Most of the time this is fine, but sometimes you want more options. When you shoot in RAW the image holds on to a lot more data and you can edit more extensively in a photo editing app. RAW format is heavier than JPG, but also allows you to do more with the photo.
Some Androids have the RAW option in the camera setting. iPhone’s need a third-party app, like ProCam, to let your camera shoot in RAW.
