What is a RAW image file?

Unlike other file formats and extensions, the term RAW is not an acronym or an initialization. Instead, it means exactly what it says. A RAW file is an unprocessed image with all of its original information intact, as captured by the camera’s sensor. Information can include the conditions that were present when the picture was taken, as well as descriptive text. Both open-source and proprietary RAW file types currently exist.

How to open a RAW file?

The best way to open a RAW file is to use the software the camera manufacturer developed specifically for that purpose. Determining the manufacturer is easy because they assign their own extension to RAW files taken using one of their cameras. For example, Canon (CR2), Nikon (NEF), Sony (SR2), Epson (ERF), Kodak (KDC), Panasonic (RW2), and others. 


Alternatively, you may use a universal image viewer, such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, or Zoner Photo Studio (an alternative to Adobe products). After post-processing (editing) RAW files are usually converted to a JPEG (RAW to JPG), PNG, TIFF, or BMP file type. To open RAW on Microsoft Windows or macOS, use the options described above. For Linux/Unix, you can use darktable. For a multi-platform viewer, try XnView MP.

What is a JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) file?

Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG), or JPG, is a universal file format that utilizes an algorithm to compress photographs and graphics. The considerable compression that JPEG offers is the reason for its wide use. As such, the relatively small size of JPEG 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.

 

How to open a JPEG file?

Almost all image-viewer programs and applications recognize and can open JPEG files. Simply double-clicking the JPEG 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.

 

JPEG files open automatically on popular web browsers such as Chrome, Microsoft applications such as Microsoft Photos, and Mac OS applications such as Apple Preview. If you experience problems opening a JPEG file, then it is most likely due to the inability of the browser or application to know that the JPEG and JPG file extensions are synonymous. Rename the file to JPG, and that should work.
