    In photography, RAW format and JPEG format are quite different. Both of these format have some differences. As far as, RAW format is concerned, it is the real digital negative. This format will give you accurate details of the photograph. So, that you can manipulate it according your requirement. Moreover, it is the highest quality of photographic format. Whereas, JPEG format is the limited version of the RAW format. Actually, the professionals use the RAW format whereas , the amateurs use the JPEG format. If you are beginner in digital photography, it is better to follow the JPEG format. When you will gain enough experience, then you can switch to the RAW format. The RAW format is used in the graphic industry whereas the JPEG format is used in the amateur circle.

    A RAW image file is huge, and can't be moved around very well.  Most high end photo editing tools have additional functions that you can use if your file is in the RAW format, like lens corrections.  In the olden days (like 5 years ago) cameras did not have the processing horsepower to do these things, so professional photographers (who are the only ones who care) shot all thier photos and saved them in RAW format, so they could use thier computers to do the heavy lifting. 

    These days, high end camers have the horsepower to apply lens corrections, color corrections, etc, then convert the file into a lossless JPEG.  You have to set the camera correctly, or you will get a compressed JPEG with losses.  Pisnum is correct in saying RAW is for professionals only.  If you are not going to apply diffraction corrections, or change the focus of different parts of your photo after you take the picture, you will be happier with a JPEG.
