Convert CR2 to PSD online, for free.
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.
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.

Photoshop Document (PSD) is the default file type for Adobe Photoshop, a powerful and complex graphic design program. PSD can store an image along with a complex array of its corresponding layers, vector paths, objects, filters, and more, all in one file! PSD allows a user to make surgical edits on individual components of an image or a graphic design while retaining the file’s information in an accessible format. One drawback of PSD is that it can be large and unwieldy.
Adobe Photoshop is the most common program to open a PSD file. A free alternative to Adobe products is the GNU Image Manipulation Program, otherwise known as GIMP.
Due to the size of PSD files, they are not easy to transport, store, or share. To overcome this, PSD is often converted to a file format that can compress the data. Most often, the conversion is to JPEG, which offers lossy compression, or PNG, which offers lossless compression.
