What is a CR2 (Canon Raw Version 2) file?

Canon Raw Version 2 (CR2) is a digital negative file format that retains all the information about the image, as recorded by a Canon digital camera. Images of this file type are uncompressed and relatively larger than other image file types. The primary benefit of using the CR2 file type is that it offers a high level of editability in post-processing that is typical of other RAW files.

How to open a CR2 file?

CR2 files open readily in Canon’s Digital Photo Professional software. Other programs to consider include Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Lightroom for Mac. A free alternative is Unidentified Flying Raw (UFRaw) and Microsoft Raw Image Extension.


Due to the large size of CR2 files or the unavailability of advanced editing software, a lot of users may prefer to convert CR2 to JPG.
