RAW, TIFF and JPEG Formats:

A RAW image is an unprocessed file which cannot be edited or printed with a bitmap graphics editor. A TIFF image is also an uncompressed image that includes full detail of the image with no quality loss. When the camera takes the RAW image from the camera's sensor, it converts the image into the TIFF or any other format with the use of camera settings. The major difference between RAW and TIFF is, RAW image file cannot be used as an image but have all the required information, which needed to create an image. Hence, to get the finished photograph, a RAW file must be converted. This conversion is accomplished by using dedicated software provided by the specific camera manufacturer or purchased through a third-party like Adobe. On the other hand a TIFF is a particular image format, which is very large and can take a good amount of storage space while saving to memory card.
