Re: RAW vs. JPEG

Monitors will typically do 6 or 8 bits per pixel. Printers also aren't perfect. You lose very little or nothing using JPEGs for display or printing.

If you decide to re-edit , having the original RAW files is nice. I re-edit my photos from a decade ago before printing, and they come out much better. Noise reduction and other technologies have come a long way over that time, and will continue to advance.

If you are in the middle of editing, the best format is either what's native to your editor, or in some cases, TIFF.
