Convert NRW to PSD 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.

Photoshop Document (PSD) is the default file type for Adobe Photoshop, a powerful and complex graphic design program. PSD can store an image along with a complex array of its corresponding layers, vector paths, objects, filters, and more, all in one file! PSD allows a user to make surgical edits on individual components of an image or a graphic design while retaining the file’s information in an accessible format. One drawback of PSD is that it can be large and unwieldy.
Adobe Photoshop is the most common program to open a PSD file. A free alternative to Adobe products is the GNU Image Manipulation Program, otherwise known as GIMP.
Due to the size of PSD files, they are not easy to transport, store, or share. To overcome this, PSD is often converted to a file format that can compress the data. Most often, the conversion is to JPEG, which offers lossy compression, or PNG, which offers lossless compression.
