What is the difference between RAW vs JPG

When you take a picture with your camera, there’s some processing and compression that goes on in the background. RAW files contain minimal processing and as a result, there’s more “raw” information stored in the file.

On the contrast, a JPG has more processing and some information or quality is lost.

RAW files = higher quality and more information.
