For the past month or so, I've been shooting in RAW+JPG. I was just importing some new photos into iPhoto and compared the RAW and JPG of the same exact pic. It's fucking night and day. I can't believe I've never done this before. So now I've decided to shoot only in RAW. But I'm not quite sure how I should handle RAW. A lot of my pics could be considered snapshots. I take a lot of pics of my daughter and other kids in the family. I've been using iPhoto to weed out the extra bad ones and keep things organized. I know most of the A&P crew are Lightroom users. I just like how things are organized in iPhoto. I've used Lightroom and use it for playing around, but I don't use it to keep things organized. How should I handle RAW? Always keep the RAW in iPhoto? Or should I 'develop it' and keep a JPG in iPhoto? In for recommendations and tips. Is the huge difference because JPGs are compressed or another reason? Would it be possible to make a JPG out of the RAW file and it look better than the JPG straight from the camera?
