Convert NRW to BMP online, for free.
Nikon RAW (NRW) is a raw image file type produced by the Nikon COOLPIX series and other Nikon digital single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras. Nikon has used NRW since 2008 to capture and store unprocessed images for its professional-level cameras. In comparison to NEF (Nikon’s other raw format), NRW supports useful features, such as Windows Imaging Component (WIC) .
Nikon Capture NX-D is the most common program for opening NRW. (It replaced Nikon Capture NX 2.) On Microsoft Windows, the NRW Codec supports NRW. On macOS, use Nikon Capture NX-D for Mac. ViewNX is a really great program that Nikon bundles with the purchase of their cameras, with the added benefit that it complements Capture NX-D.
Alternative programs for opening NRW include HDR Darkroom, Zoner Photo Studio, and Corel PaintShop Pro. NRW can be easily converted to JPEG format using FreeConvert.com ( NRW to JPG ). A great multiplatform converter for NRW is XnView MP. On Linux/Unix, try darktable, which is open-source, cross-platform, and free. Other programs to consider include Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, HDR Darkroom, and Zoner Photo Studio.

Bitmap (BMP) is a pixel-based file format that stores two-dimensional images, generally without any compression. BMP utilizes a dot matrix data structure called raster graphics, which establishes the color depth of the image. BMP is mostly used for digital publishing of photographs. However, due to the lack of compression, BMP files are usually large.
BMP can be device-dependent or independent. BMP opens readily in the Microsoft Paint application and is often associated with Microsoft operating systems. Despite the association with Microsoft, a device-independent BMP, or DIB, can open on almost any device, operating system, or application.
In addition to opening BMP files, many applications can be used to create them, such as Adobe Illustrator. Should you need to convert the BMP into a vector-based image, then consider using CorelDRAW. Other applications that can open BMP files include Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Photos, Apple Preview, Apple Photos, and ColorStrokes.
