When you capture an image in the JPEG format, the camera processes the image. The camera also compresses the image based on the quality option you specify in the camera menu. You can store more images on a card when you specify a smaller image size and lower image quality.
What JPEG setting should I use?
For most web use, Small is fine. For images that will need to be cropped, or used full screen on higher-resolution displays, or printed at basic sizes, upgrading to Medium size, 4512×3008, is probably a good idea.
Is it better to shoot in JPEG or RAW?
A RAW image contains wider dynamic range and color gamut compared to a JPEG image. For highlight and shadow recovery when an image or parts of an image are underexposed or overexposed, a RAW image provides far better recovery potential compared to JPEG. Finer control and adjustment potential.
What is the best image quality setting?
With JPEGs, you have a choice of quality (compression) settings. ‘High’ or ‘Fine’ gives the best quality but the biggest files, ‘Medium’ or ‘Normal’ gives decent quality but smaller files, while ‘Low’ or ‘Basic’ means very small files but a visible quality loss.
What is the highest quality JPEG format?
90% JPEG quality gives a very high-quality image while gaining a significant reduction on the original 100% file size. 80% JPEG quality gives a greater file size reduction with almost no loss in quality.
What image quality should I shoot in?
Go RAW for Detailed, Stylized Shots
The RAW format is ideal if you are shooting with the intent of editing the images later. Shots where you are trying to capture a lot of detail or color, and images where you want to tweak light and shadow, should be shot in RAW.
Which image quality is best for DSLR?
Image Quality and File Type (NEF/RAW, JPEG, and TIFF)

What does RAW image quality mean?
RAW images capture everything that passes through your camera’s image sensor without compression, noise reduction, or exposure compensation, which means you’ll be able to adjust the color, contrast, and white balance of your images when you edit them.
Does converting RAW to JPEG lose quality?
When converting from raw to jpg you lose options for further image manipulation. This is not quite the same as image quality. You can make a black & white jpg from a raw file, it will have full resolution but there is no way to make the jpg color again.
