Nikon Electronic Format (NEF) is a proprietary file format for Nikon cameras. It is a RAW file format, which means that it includes all of the information about the image captured by the camera’s sensor, such as data about the camera used to take the photo and the settings that were in place when it was taken. NEF files are not compressed and are often referred to as digital negatives.
A NEF file must be transferred from a Nikon camera to a computer for viewing and editing. Since NEF is proprietary to Nikon, the best program to use for opening and editing a NEF is Nikon’s Capture NX2 or a post-processing software like Adobe Lightroom.
Converting a NEF file to a non-proprietary format is as simple as opening it in an image-viewing application and saving it as a TIFF, JPG, PNG, GIF, PSD, or any other popular format. If you do not have access to programs that can open NEF files, we recommend converting them via our NEF to JPG tool. However, NEF files are meant to be post-processed first before converting to JPG.

Tagged Image File Format (TIFF), also known as TIF, is one of the most common image file formats. The most prevalent use of TIFF files is in digital advertisements and desktop publishing. The bitmap and raster structure of TIFFs provide this file format with the flexibility to function as a container for JPEGs, image files with lossless compression, images with layers, or as pages.
The most common programs to open TIFF files are Photo Viewer for Windows and Apple Preview for macOS. A free and independent program you can use is called XnView MP. You can also use our TIFF to JPG converter if you are having trouble opening tiff files.
Alternative programs such as ColorStrokes, GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP), Adobe Photoshop, and ACDSee are also useful for opening and handling TIFF files.
