Thread: The wonderful and missunderstood world of JPEG

  1. #31
    ok, thanks for the insight. I do like taking my photos in Raw, but once I have my sharpness and white balance set, I'd like to store my end results in jpg format about half the size what the original raw is. Otherwise I soon have no space to store all my nice vacation photos. One answer could be get a bigger external Hard drive.
    Do you keep all your raw's just to view them as slide shows later?

    Save on a DVD (be careful on the format... as I have lost one due to some strange reading issue) and make a copy. Then save in a JPEG with zero compression. Leave that on your computer. If you work on the image, do it on the JPEG, but save as another file. Even zero compression will save a ton of space. A 10 meg image, in JPEG, with no compression is typically around 4 meg (give or take a meg), and you know that a raw is way larger than 10 meg.

    DO BOTH - get an external hard drive (if you watch, you can get 350 gb drives for $100); plus burn DVD's.

    I actually set up an old computer as a raid server - so all my original stuff has redundant backups. I had a good friend loose an entire dive trip when he couldn't read the DVD's (the computer he burned them on died, and they wouldn't read on anything else).

    Over the years, I have had 2 total disk crashes (one laptop, one desktop) - the backups saved me.
