Serious Photographers and Semi-Pro DSLR users shoot all their images in RAW rather than lossy JPEG format. Shooting in RAW has its own advantages.
When you shoot in RAW, you can play with the photo’s appearance: Saturation, vibrance, Clarity, sharpness, brightness, exposure, adjust highlights, shadows and more, without losing any quality.
When you shoot in RAW, you’re left with handful of softwares which can edit and understand RAW formats like NEF, ARW, etc. Most popular softwares being Adobe Lightroom Photoshop CS, iPhoto. You don’t have access to these all the time, thats what webapps are designed for: App works on any PC, without installing.
