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.

What is a BMP (Bitmap) file?

Bitmap (BMP) is a pixel-based file format that stores two-dimensional images, generally without any compression. BMP utilizes a dot matrix data structure called raster graphics, which establishes the color depth of the image. BMP is mostly used for digital publishing of photographs. However, due to the lack of compression, BMP files are usually large.

How to open a BMP file?

BMP can be device-dependent or independent. BMP opens readily in the Microsoft Paint application and is often associated with Microsoft operating systems. Despite the association with Microsoft, a device-independent BMP, or DIB, can open on almost any device, operating system, or application. 


In addition to opening BMP files, many applications can be used to create them, such as Adobe Illustrator. Should you need to convert the BMP into a vector-based image, then consider using CorelDRAW. Other applications that can open BMP files include Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Photos, Apple Preview, Apple Photos, and ColorStrokes.
