I looked back at some older pics I had but didn't really want to show them as they looked a bit under-exposed and generally the style wasn't suitable so I re-processed the ones I needed. It took me seconds to achieve good results and recover detail that I thought was lost. The final pics look way better than the prev iteration and have gone into my portfolio. So glad I shot RAW from day one!You're not wrong. Last week I did a fairly deep archive search (2002-2003) for a client who was needing shots of someone who has since passed away. I'd shot them JPEG and they were awful. I may have thought they were OK 12 years ago, but now? I switched to 100% RAW workflow from around that time, so it was probably one of my last all-JPEG jobs. If they'd been RAW files, my client would have loved the 2014 conversions and file processing. At the time I didn't consider the job to be that important. Brilliant of me (not) for thinking I could predict the future!
The evidence has been in for a L O N G time now.
If anyone reading this thread still needs convincing that RAW is tops, then too bad.
