Canon Raw CIFF Image (CRW) file is a RAW file type that is proprietary to older-model Canon digital cameras. (Newer Canon digital cameras use the CR2 format.) In terms of structure, CRW is similar to the TIFF file format. The benefit of a CRW is that it is an unprocessed image that contains all of the file’s information, as captured by the camera. To learn more about the technical details of CRW, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) offers a thorough explanation.
Since CRW is a proprietary file format for Canon, the best program to use to work with a CRW file is Canon’s Digital Photo Professional. Other great programs to consider are Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. If you want to try a Microsoft product, such as Microsoft Windows Live Photo Gallery, then be sure to install the Microsoft Raw Image Extension.
As a RAW file format, CRW can convert to many different types of image files. You can use our free CRW to JPG or Image Converter tools to convert your CRW files. In addition, you can use Adobe DNG to convert CRW to DNG.

WebP is an open-source file type that uses predictive compression to create images that are ideal for web pages and mobile applications. WebP images are as much as 30 percent smaller than JPEG (JPG) and Portable Network Graphics (PNG) files, with similar visual quality. WebP images load quickly on web pages and mobile applications.
The default program for opening WebP is Google Chrome (Chrome), which works across platforms. WebP files also open automatically on GIMP and Microsoft Paint. Besides Chrome, all other web browsers support the WebP format.
Alternative free viewers to try are Pixelmator and Photopea. Also, try Corel PaintShop Pro. Prior to using IrfanView, Windows Photo Viewer, and Adobe Photoshop, be sure to install the plugins for opening WebP.
