Sony Alpha Raw (ARW) is the proprietary RAW file format for Sony digital cameras. It is also known as Sony Digital Camera RAW file. ARW is an uncompressed, unprocessed image file, which contains all of the file’s information, as captured by the sensor in the camera that captured the image. Since the file is not compressed, no data is lost, which is the main benefit of ARW and all RAW file types.

How to open an ARW file?

Sony provides the Sony® RAW Driver as the default program for opening an ARW file. It will allow you to view an ARW file on a Microsoft Windows operating system (OS) as you would a JPEG. Adobe Photoshop is another program that is commonly used to open ARW.


On Linux/Unix, use the open-source program darktable to view ARW. Across platforms, use XnView MP. ARW is often converted to JPEG (ARW to JPG) after post-processing edits.
