Edit JPEG as if you shot it in RAW.

Use machine learning to convert JPEG to high-quality RAW for better editing. Prevent banding, remove compression artifacts, recover detail, and enhance dynamic range.

Fix artifacts, restore dynamic range, and recover detail

JPEG to RAW AI is highly effective at removing compression artifacts and recovering color detail. Note the additional fine detail in the top right and bottom of the image.

There's also enhanced dynamic range as shown by deeper shadows and enhanced highlights.

Can you tell the difference vs. the original RAW?

Made possible by AI

There’s normally no way of recovering lost detail. JPEG to RAW AI is currently the only machine-learning powered software capable of doing this.

Simple workflow

Whenever you would edit a JPEG, put it through JPEG to RAW AI first for best editing results. Standalone application for Mac + Windows that allows batch processing.

Constantly improving

We’re continually training our JPEG to RAW conversion model with more data, which makes it better the more time passes. You’ll get the latest and greatest when the model improves.

"I am impressed with the quality I can pull from older images that were shot in jpeg on an 8mpx DSLR. I am able to pull much more detail from the shadows and have better flexibility to edit color and tones."

"The results are far superior in the 16 bit TIFF to the JPEG, yet the TIFF was created from the JPEG... somehow, this software seems to be able to recreate lost information and build a credible 16 bit image from it."

JPEG compression affects photo quality in some very specific ways. Here's how JPEG to RAW AI recovers image quality.

Dynamic range

High
Low
Recovered

Your image loses significant dynamic range when it's converted to JPEG. JPEG to RAW AI helps you recover a portion of this lost dynamic range by bringing back lost shadow and highlight details. While you won't be able to recover completely missing details, it can work with even very small amounts of information.

This allows you to be more aggressive with editing your photo's exposure or contrast. If you ever think that you've blown out a sky and you don't have the original RAW file, try running it through JPEG to RAW AI first.

Color space

Adobe RGB
sRGB
ProPhoto RGB

Color space represets the range of color that is supported in your image. JPEG images are usually in the sRGB color space, which works great for web but less for printing and editing. When editing a photo in sRGB, adjusting saturation or vibrance will often reveal ugly color blotchiness.

You can prevent this from happening by running it through JPEG to RAW AI. JPEG to RAW’s machine learning models expand the sRGB colorspace to ProPhoto RGB, which is even better than a regular RAW file! This works so well because there is usually enough information in at least one color channel for our models to reconstruct missing detail with a high level of preciseness.

The larger resulting color space allows you to better edit saturation and vibrance without any visible artifacting.

Color depth

~12-bit
8-bit
16-bit

Color depth (also called bit depth) is how much color information the image can store. When editing an image with low bit depth, you will see color banding in smooth gradients like skies.

An 8-bit JPEG only has 256 values per channel. Running that JPEG through JPEG to RAW AI will expand it to 65,532 values per channel. This will prevent posterization and banding when you adjust the contrast in your images.

You'll see visible compression artifacts in your image when editing highly compressed images. JPEG to RAW AI is exceptional at removing these artifacts while preserving natural image features:

Artifacts won’t be easily visible in high-quality JPEGs, but they can completely ruin an image if they are. They’ll also get accentuated by post-processing, especially sharpening. Run your images through JPEG to RAW AI to ensure artifacts don't impact your workflow.

JPEGs will often feature smoothed details due to a small sensor or heavy processing. For example, iPhone photos are heavily processed before being saved, which sometimes ends up removing a lot of image detail.

JPEG to RAW AI helps you recover fine detail removed during the conversion process.
