Today, when doing some more maintenance of my photographies database I realized that although RAW is a far superior format for the photo enthusiast, family pictures don’t have to be preserve in that format.
It may sound silly, but when your collection is of a decent size, it matters. RAW files (at least the cr2 and DNG I use) are 3 to 4 times bigger than the JPG.
I shoot in dual mode, RAW+JPG. For now on I will add an extra step to my work flow so that I keep only the JPG of the family pictures.
