Reuters bans RAW

Ars Technica:

Reuters, the news and photography agency, has issued an outright ban on photographs captured and submitted in RAW format. Instead, freelance contributors must now only submit photos that were processed and stored as JPEG inside the camera.

From a political standpoint1 I can understand why they do that, but really? JPEG? Ugh.2

  1. Or is it moral? Emotional? I don’t actually know which standpoint that is. Logical, perhaps. 
  2. Besides, if I was going to tweak photos before submitting them to Reuters, I’d do it well enough that they wouldn’t be able to tell anyways.
