Kodak RAW (DCR) was Kodak’s first raw-image-file format. Released in the 1990s, it was part of the Kodak Digital Camera System (DCS) series of cameras and was accompanied by specialized software. While Kodak discontinued the DCS camera series in 2005, the DCR format is still supported by many Kodak cameras today.
DCR opens easily with Kodak’s legacy software called Kodak Photodesk. While still available, it is important to note that Kodak discontinued this software program. Modern options for opening DCR include Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop.
A free alternative for opening DCR is XnView MP, which works on multiple platforms. Since DCR is a raw bitmap file, it converts easily to more common file formats. However, in most cases, it is simply converted to JPEG (DCR to JPG).

Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) is a type of bitmap file format that relies on pixels to form simple images using the RGB color model. Unlike the uncompressed BMP file format, GIF uses lossless compression and supports animation without audio. The most common use of GIF is in animated form as advertisements, emotion-based replies on social media, and memes, which often go viral on the Internet.
Almost all web browsers support GIF, which gives it a distinct advantage over other image formats, such as PNG. Furthermore, GIF opens on Apple’s mobile devices, including iPhone and iPad, which makes it more popular than Adobe Flash.
GIFs open easily on almost all image-viewer applications, web browsers, and operating systems. To open a GIF for the purposes of editing it, use an application such as Adobe Photoshop. On Windows, open GIFs with Microsoft Photos, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Roxio Creator NXT Pro, and others. On macOS, use Adobe image viewers and editors, including Adobe Illustrator.
