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.
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.

Portable Network Graphics (PNG) is a raster-based file type that compresses images for portability. PNG images can have RGB or RGBA colors and support transparency, which makes them perfect for use in icons, or graphic designs. PNG also supports animations with better transparency (try our GIF to APNG). The benefits of using PNG are Plus, PNG is an open format that uses lossless compression.
Generally, PNG files will open in your operating system’s default image viewer. PNG files are also easily viewable on all web browsers. If you are having trouble opening PNG files, use our PNG to JPG, PNG to WebP, or PNG to BMP converters.
Alternative programs such as GIMP or Adobe Photoshop are useful for opening and editing PNG files. PNG files are a bit larger than other file types, so exercise caution when adding them to a web page. One interesting feature of PNG files is the ability to create transparency in the image, particularly a transparent background.
