All serious photographers shoot RAW files when taking pictures they plan to edit and print. The reason is simple: RAW files give you greater adjustment flexibility, thereby allowing you to recreate the shot you saw and gain the best quality from your digital camera. However, before you can edit RAW files from your camera they must be converted into standard TIFF or JPEG format.
Moving the slider to the right tilts the horizon on the right side upwards, while moving it to the left tilts the image in the opposite direction.
Changing the sizes of image files is one of the most common software-based tasks in digital photography. Regardless of the type of digital camera you own, there will be times when the files it produces have to be resized for either printing or emailing. The process is simple, and can be done with virtually any editing application. It allows you to match the image parameters to the way the image will be viewed, so you can share your photos more effectively. It can also save you both time and money when you want to have prints made at a lab.

Photographers may invest a lot of money in lenses that produce sharp images, but they often fail to capitalise on their investment by not applying sharpening post-capture.
