Comment: Ever wondered what is the best format option for shooting. If you use RAW, but don't know when you might need the JPEG, then read on.
The above is a JPEG extracted from the RAW image using a piece of software called IJFR available as shareware at
It's reliable and fast (fifty RAW images in less than 20 secs on most recent computers). Its accessed by right clicking on the RAW folder where the images are stored.
Since there is a quality JPEG embedded in Canon RAW images, and is easily extracted with this software, I only shoot RAW now, and only generate JPEG's when I need to look at an image in a hurry.
