From RAW to JPG

By Drummerdelight
With observations and remarks in mind, made by fellow EPZ members, I tested what the results would be when taking both RAW as JPGs.
I worked with LRcc as usual, as I have to confess I have no knowledge of Photoshop or other programs besides some experimenting with Eff pro.
YES, I feel I got better details in the clouds, this in a more neutral color. OK

Main posted photo is from RAW
The V1 is from a JPG

I took both images and tweeked untill I was pleased enough with the results.
As mentioned and read in articles, I found I was able to get more details out of the whitest and darkest parts.

However, this was not always the case...

In an other image V2 (RAW I checked) and V3 (JPG) show different results, mostly same conditions... here one can't realy conclude that I had much or any benifit from using RAW (mostly in the clouds). To my disbelief here it seems the jpg looks better (has more correct color in the clouds... pfffjew...Blush)

If I understood wel, the allround conclusion was that Fuji RAW files are not realy handled wel in LR - not until now, perhaps in the future or with their own software...

Thank you Isabel, there's only two images in fact, both come from RAW and JPG files converted in LR.

I tended to shoot raw + jpeg and very often, when I finished tweaking the raw in ACR it ended up looking like the jpeg, without me having looked at the jpeg.
Fuji's in-camera jpeg choices are brilliant, and once you have taken the time to understand how they differ, you can forget shooting raw and merely choose the jpeg effect to suit the subjject.
I was until recently a confirmed raw shooter, but now use it only if a client is involved.

Thank you Malc, I 've have had the same experience. I also find the RAW files sO large.
But I do respect the fact that some prefer the best possible file, just in case.
