JPG pros and cons
JPG is the universally accepted format for viewing and storing images, which makes it extremely portable and compatible with almost every image processing app and hardware device. Unlike RAW file formats, it’s a compressed file format, which is much lighter and much more transferrable than unprocessed RAW photos. Among the disadvantages, one should mention that JPEG compression technique is a lossy compression. It means that in the process if compression, certain content of the image is lost from the image, together with some quality. Besides, you should also bear in mind that once you’ve converted your RAW image (e.g. CR2, NEF or ARW) into JPG, there is no way you can do the reverse action. So, make sure you keep backups.
