By now, practically all enthusiast photographers grasp the advantages of shooting in RAW. But one of my favorite reasons is rarely discussed: in-camera editing.
This is one of my best loved coffee shop activities. Pull up a RAW file on the camera's LCD (in this case a Fujifilm X-20), go to the editing functions (menu), and make a completely different image. For this shot of the Easter Lilies, I opted for B&W with a yellow filter. Here are the two files.
You still have the original RAW file, but now there's a different interpretation of it as a Jpeg. And you can create additional versions if you wish. Once you find something you like, transfer it to your mobile device and upload.
If you like traveling light, and creating artistic images, in-camera RAW conversion is worth a look.
