Still Pix in RAW

If you’re shooting still images, you should definitely shoot RAW over JPG (or both). For your RAW images you’ll need one of these:

  • Adobe Lightroom
  • Capture One
  • The Software that came with your camera

You can use Adobe Lightroom on the computers in the Horn Center or in the Spidel Center. If you work on those computers, you’ll probably want to bring a thumb drive or USB hard drive for your files.
