    You can shoot RAW even if you want to have fun.

    Some people have loads of fun tweaking the RAW file in Lightroom. Different people are different.

    What my personal opinion on this thing is - if you can maximize what you WANT out of the picture with JPG, then whatever floats your boat. But if you shoot JPG, and still can't get what you want out of your pictures, and shooting RAW would help, then jolly well shoot RAW. It's that simple.

    I shoot raw cos I dun want to adjust the WB for everyshot I take out there...Raw provides more adjustments for WB and Jpeg provides lesser adjustments.

    Whichever way you choose, as long as it work for you....

    Nothing is impossible to manipulate a picture....it just time, skill and proper tools.

    This is a suggestion.

    Go to the Develop panel, under Basic, push the slider to the max settings for both RAW and JPG and you would have gotten half of the answer practically.
    The most obvious ones would be Fill Light, Recover and Exposure IMO.

    Raw = A gal that just said yes to be your girlfriend. So there's a lot of things you can be do and change.
    Jpeg = Just signed the papers... what can you do?

    Just accept that its "Game Over" loh

    RAW = Film Negatives, you can process whichever way you want

    JPEG = Colour Slides, not much can be done at this stage

    Ok, is it only JPEG that will degrade every time I do editing on it? How about other formats such as TIFF? Thanks for the help guys.

    Edwinn ar, the advise wont go wrong de. Really raw ones use photoshop to edit got difference one leh.
    Just that need a DNG converter to convert first but the extra step is worth it.
    I followed octarine's advise and went to download then i see the difference.....

    Haha yes I know that RAW is the way to go if I want the details. That was a totally different question altogether, not in anyway related to the first one I had. Just so I can compare between TIFF and JPEG.
