Setting Up Your Digital Camera for Camera RAW and AdobeRGB

Setting Up Your Digital Camera for Camera RAW and AdobeRGB

  1. In your camera’s shooting menu choose RAW or RAW + JPG. Shooting RAW + JPG will give you the advantage of seeing a processed image (JPG) but will take up more space on your memory card. You do not need the JPG image and eventually will probably want to only shoot in RAW.
  2. To increase your camera’s color gamut (wider set of colors) set your camera’s Color Space to AdobeRGB if available. sRGB is usually set by default and is the only option on some cameras. Choosing AdobeRGB will give you the most colors to work with as you edit. It will also give you more colors when you print on a high-quality photo printer. If you plan to use your images on the web you will convert them to sRGB when you create JPGs.
