The support for shooting in RAW is one of the new and important features that have been introduced in Android 5.0 Lollipop. However even with the presence of a Pro camera mode in the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge the option of saving images in RAW hasn’t been provided. Moreover as many people had speculated that the RAW feature would be added in Android 5.1.1, it turned out to be true.
The Android 5.1.1 update for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge does support RAW image capture but the users will have to use a third party camera application. Now many of you would be thinking that what does saving images in the RAW format offer the user!
Actually if anyone of you has the knowledge of Photoshop and other image editing tools there is a lot that you will be able to do with saving images in RAW. Well the RAW images are basically unprocessed images that don’t suffer from the artifacts and quality reduction introduced when an image is saved in the standard JPG format.
Plus editing RAW images and getting something useful will require users to know their way around Photoshop. The only disappointing thing is that Samsung hasn’t updated its camera application to offer the option to the end user but everyone is hoping that the South Korean giant sees to it in the future software updates.
