Convert NRW to PNG 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.

Portable Network Graphics (PNG) is a raster-based file type that compresses images for portability. PNG images can have RGB or RGBA colors and support transparency, which makes them perfect for use in icons, or graphic designs. PNG also supports animations with better transparency (try our GIF to APNG). The benefits of using PNG are Plus, PNG is an open format that uses lossless compression.
Generally, PNG files will open in your operating system’s default image viewer. PNG files are also easily viewable on all web browsers. If you are having trouble opening PNG files, use our PNG to JPG, PNG to WebP, or PNG to BMP converters.
Alternative programs such as GIMP or Adobe Photoshop are useful for opening and editing PNG files. PNG files are a bit larger than other file types, so exercise caution when adding them to a web page. One interesting feature of PNG files is the ability to create transparency in the image, particularly a transparent background. To accomplish this, try this transparent background tool.
