Convert DCR to JPG online, for free.
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).

JPG (Joint Photographic Experts Group), is a universal file format that utilizes an algorithm to compress photographs and graphics. The considerable compression that JPG offers is the reason for its wide use. As such, the relatively small size of JPG files makes them excellent for transporting over the Internet and using on websites. You can use our compress JPEG tool to reduce the file size by up to 80%!
If you need even better compression, you can convert JPG to WebP, which is a newer and more compressible file format.
Almost all image-viewer programs and applications recognize and can open JPG files. Simply double-clicking the JPG file will usually result in its opening in your default image viewer, image editor, or web browser. To select a specific application to open the file, utilize right-click, and select "Open with" to make your selection.
