What format do you use when taking your photo's?
I use jpeg for now, but i'm using raw more. Luckily my cam comes with a setting that'll give me both in the same shot.
Just wondering what everyone else uses.

I guess the following question would be why do you choose one over the other?

If you want to make any adjustments to the photo then shoot RAW, jpeg compresses the image, before you ever see it with leaves compression artifacts and a lower bit depth (which helps with shade gradations, colors, skin tone, etc.) You can always save as jpeg after you're done, I could go on but I need to restrain my inner photo nerd.
because i haven't used the other ;)
i set my cam so it saves both raw and jpeg files
Raw - when shooting photos, you know you will want to edit later.JPG - for those photos you wnat to upload on lookbook, facebook or myspace asap.

No Please go full throttle nerd cause I don't know the difference and would like to as my camera also has both settings!
Jpeg. And I edit and have no problems at all.

Both, Jpeg for quick Bridge reviews and sketch edits once that's done you edit the raw file after the sketch, voila.
I always shoot raw. Never now when you're going to end up with something amazing.
Jpeg for me, It's still just as easy to edit as Raw.

RAW ALL THE WAYYYY
THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE,
Neither; TIFF.RAW is good, but can be a pain in the ass if you don't have a good converter.JPEGs are meant for uploading to the internet; each time you re-save a jpeg, it compresses the file and loses information (hence it is known as a "lossy" format).TIFF is the best, as it is easy to work with, and no data loss upon repeat saves.
while RAW is good, and the quality is amazing....it takes up way to much space.i shoot JPG but i wish i had a bigger memory card to shoot RAW!

I don't even have the possibility to take photos with RAW. (:
Shoot in RAW, save in TIFF for editing, then 'save as' in JPG for a shot going on the internet. However there's no point in shooting in RAW if you don't have a good converter. If you can't find a good one then just stick with JPG fine.
I guess i'll need to set up my converter to see the full difference. Thanks everyone for you comments.

THE STEEL CITY,
What kind of edits would be different from editing in a jpeg format?
I've taken shots in raw, but they don't upload to my cs3 so i'll need to load the converter disc that came with my a200.

raw in fashion especially
I haven't used jpeg, I don't think my camera has a setting for it.I keep it in RAW at all times though. I love it. Good results!
