How fine are those Fine jpegs? in Alamy Quality Control and technical talk Posted October 4 · Edited October 4 by Phil Robinson I used to shoot RAW backed up with JPEGs on the second memory card. When doing live news I used the JPEGs but now I just do RAW for everything, news included. It's an extra 2 seconds to get the file open and if I need a bit of exposure or contrast adjustment I do that in RAW first before converting. I know time is of the essence in filing live news, but I'd rather have better quality images going through two minutes later. Most of my 'news' sales come later as stock anyway rather than next day newsprint and I like to spend more time getting better quality stock to replace the ones I did in a hurry on a laptop in a cafe in Westminster.
