    Nope. RAW images are not affected when you work on them.

    nope so long as you retain the original format. Actually none of these images are suppose to degrade as they are all digital. They may be destroyed becos of unforeseen circumstances but I do not think they degrade and definitely not over time.

    Ya, 1st time is raw. 2nd time u stored and retrieved rare. Follow this order

    Raw -> Rare -> Medium Rare -> Medium Well Done -> Well Done

    Joking lah. No change loh.

    Yes, RAW and Tiff will stay the same. Jpeg will degrade each time you open and save it.

    No wonder my images suddenly become outstanding after I've opened and saved them 4 times.
