How Do I Know If The Edited Photo From Camera Is Still RAW On My iPad?

Hey there, I have some photos shot in a camera which are .raw file format. I have stored them on my Google Drive and downloaded them from Google Drive to my iPad Photos, then I imported them to Lightroom for further editing. My question is will the raw files change file format during the downloading and editing process and how can I know if they do? Are there any photographers to give me an answer? Thanks a lot!

Hello, my friend. According to Apple Support, if you want to keep the RAW file format unchanged, you can directly import RAW images to an iPad with the Camera Connection Kit, and then turn on Download Originals. As for the trouble of whether the raw file changes format during the downloading and editing process, I can tell you that the Photos app uses a JPEG file as the original. If you want the photos to be kept in .raw file format, tell the Photos app to do so:

Step 1: In the Photos app on your iPad, double-click a photo to open it, then click Edit in the toolbar.

Step 2: Choose Image > Use RAW as Original.

If you're not sure whether the photos have changed file format or not, you can open the photos on a web site because most websites don't support a raw file. If the website fails to open them, then they're raw files.

Best wishes!
