just for fun - RAW vs JPEG + 1
Oct 1, 2011

I shot this picture as a RAW + JPEG. the camera was set in "standard" mode with contrast, saturation and sharpness all set to zero. The images were imported into Aperture and then exported as JPEG's with no adjustments made to either the RAW or the JPEG.

RAW

and just for fun here is a fully processed version of the RAW file

I really love the way Aperture deals with RAW files - with its default settings it gets them so close to the cameras processed JPEGs that its hard to tell the difference and I have tha advantage of having all of the data in the RAW file if I happen to need it. Its like I get all of the advantages and ease of shooting JPEGs and also all of the advantages of shooting RAW just by shooting RAW and using Aperture

If you happen to have a MAC I highly recommend Aperture - it deals with RAW files much better than any of the other programs I have tried - it virtually eliminates the extra work that is normally associated with shooting RAW
