...and I had to explain it in a short and simple way... And I said: "RAW files are basically digital negatives that contain all the information pertaining to the image and are usually edited using certain software in a non-destructive manner. TIFF files are working files that can be in 16 bit or 8 bit without loss in image quality. JEPG files are smaller image files, compressed with lossy compression in order to save space. Converting to JPEG should ideally be your last step when editing a file, due to the possibility of artifacts introduced due to compression." ...How accurate would that be? Haha. Am I missing any major key components or is that a fairly decent description?
