Raw or JPEG

Well simply put RAW is the file right off the camera chip. No real file formatting has gone on. Unlike a JPEG that can dither colors and items. Yes it is a large file but if you were wanting to print ot render it that would be the place to start. Also I recall that the JPEG wasn't a life long file format. It is prefereed as it is small and thus a great web item. So yes you will need to save as a jpeg to email. But if it's something to be proud of and a 8*10 then a RAW or TIFF is what you want. Photoshop (even LE) will do a web save and you can adjust that to a size or quality.
