    when you say resolution change, do you mean the dimensions? Try with hdr and living images off

    i dont know exactly the word to call it. (sorry) but like the description that i've put, the picture became darker. is that normal?
    there's a big difference when i take a picture using the microsoft camera (which is much lighter) and the lumia camera. (in LUMIA 830)

    Microsoft changed the processing algorithms.

    Check this info though.
    With Lumia Camera Classic retired, there is another way to get back the original classic processing algorithms. Third party camera apps on the Lumia 830, 930, 730 and 735 all use the original natural post processing algorithms that were found in Lumia Camera Classic. The best free apps in the store for this purpose are ‘Camera360 Sight’ (which is best for quick shots), and ‘Imagine Cam’ (which uses the Nokia Imaging API to allow full manual controls).

    chancooluk really seems to know his stuff. Why not try the alternate camera apps he mentions?

    is it normal for the lumia camera to make the photo darker after shot? someone says that is converts to JPEG. and i want to know if there's an option to stop it from converting and just leave the photo like the after shot photo in microsoft camera.

    With any digital camera, there is a conversion from the sensor data to jpg.

    The camera software uses interpretive algorithms to make this change. Nokia/Lumia had one set of algorithms in Lumia Camera. Microsoft has a different set of algorithms in Microsoft Camera.

    With your Lumia 830, you can convert to jpg yourself. Use the capture DNG feature. Put the RAWER app on your phone to do the "conversion to jpg" yourself or process the DNG on your computer..

    If the phone didn't "convert to jpg" you'd just have a dump file of the data from the sensor. That is not an image. It's just a data file.

    Honestly, I like Camera360 Sight app a lot. The shots look good and it is a fast shooter. If you want point and shoot, try that. It doesn't have a lot of settings and manual adjustments. What it does have, as chancooluk pointed out, is the same algorithms you are used to from Lumia Camera. Give it a try and see if the pics don't look better to you.

    I also noticed some subtle change when I view my photos everytime, I think it sharpens it or it just loads its original high res during that visible transition

    well if it also happens to your photos then that means it normal.
