Slang and Photography Jargon Here’s a few other terms that are a bit more advanced, and even completely made up jargon. RAW vs JPEG. RAW en JPEG Op het moment dat de camera een foto maakt, gaan er allerlei elektronische processen lopen binnen in de camera. Alle digitale camera's zijn uitgerust met een processor die deze bewerkingen voor zijn/haar rekening neemt. Voor JPEG files gelden meer van deze processen dan voor RAW files.

De naam zegt het al, RAW (betekent ruw) files zijn onbewerkt. Onderstaand schema is hier een illustratief overzicht van. Zoals in figuur 1 te zien is, zitten er tussen de sensordata en de JPEG file een aantal processen. De instellingen voor JPEG bestanden worden vaak opgeslagen in zogenaamde Picture Styles (figuur 3).

Heel anders is dat bij de RAW file. Zoals in figuur 4 te zien is, krijg ik bij Photoshop eigenlijk geen mogelijkheden om de data van mijn foto aan te passen, voordat het een digitaal bestand wordt. Zoals te zien is in figuur 5, zijn alle instellingen (inclusief de zwart-wit instelling), die bij JPEG in de camera gebeuren, achteraf nog aan te passen in Photoshop CC.
