If I shoot RAW, open the image and convert it to JPEG without making any corrections, will the image look the way it would have if it were taken in JPEG?

please don't tell me to search this topic or that "it's been asked before"......I'm sensitive

To be honest I've never actually saved my RAW's as jpeg but my thinking it would read the parameter used in the camera with the resulting image being that.

Give it a try and see _ :-|

Depends on what raw converter you use. With Canon's or any 3rd party converter that uses the Canon raw converter API, yes, it will. With Photoshop or the rest of the other 3rd party converter, probably not.

it won't, actually. JPEGS have a little bit of sharpening, contrast and saturation adjustment, and noise reduction done to them...if you just process your RAW file and do nothing to it, it will probably look a little flat, unsharp, and noisey...may or may not be a drastic difference, depending on the shot.

(edit) one thing though...if your raw converter uses some "auto" adjustments to the file, it may tweak them to make up for it.

I’ll continue to test this out and find what works best for me, but there does seem to be two different answers to something that should be straight forward……and by the way I use RSE .

Thanks for the help!

The camera usually applies sharpening, contrast, and saturation to the JPG, so unless your RAW convertor does that it won't be identical.

I guess I need to go back and try DPP again. I'm using Bibble now, occasionally ACR, and am very happy with them.

DPP left images very noisy compared to jpegs straight from the camera...but that is just anecdotal experience, not scientific fact. But from using it for a year or so before I bought Bibble and CS2, it didn't seem like Canon's RAW converter worked as well as it's in-camera JPEG converter.

I'll add this into the discussion - depending upon what color space you have your camera set to capture in will also affect how your images look.

SRGB is a small color space that Adobe RGB - so less color range is captured if your using SRGB :lol:

Sorry, but I think that needs a bit of modification. It is indeed true of Zoombrowser, but DPP produces a different result.

Well, that's the nature of internet forums. There is no guarantee that anybody here knows anything.
