Thanks Ussnorway, but for the purposes of an app such as Express will the processes it can undertake yield a greater potential for an image when using raw files?
I understand that raw provides far better capabilities for us to tweak an image to our own liking. Especially so much more so when using a quality computer based program. However, when utilising an app those capabilities are obviously limited. So are they even more limited when using jpg as opposed to raw? Or is the difference marginal (or barely even noticeable) because it’s only an app?
Thanks for your time in responding to a lazy amateur!
so you are never going to do anything with the image again i.e, it will not need to be opened | edited 5 years from now to place in a background or cut the boyfriend out of the image?
the point of using an app is that it is fast... most people carry a start phone on them now days so that is one device you tend to have on you but if you ever want to edit that image again then raw is the option to use
a medium (L6 4608X3072) image in jpeg will be under a MB
the same image in raw will be under 20MB so a 16G stick from any shop holds 16000MB i.e, 800 images
size matters if you have a few thousand images or you put them on the web but most senarios = use raw
