Convert RW2 to PNG online, for free.
Panasonic RAW Image (RW2) is an unprocessed image taken by a Panasonic Lumix camera. Raw files, such as RW2 (and others) provide photographers and image editors with complete control over processing an image file, which is the main advantage and benefit of working with RW2.
The default program for opening RW2 is Panasonic’s PHOTOfunSTUDIO. On Microsoft Windows (Windows) and macOS, use Adobe products, such as Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, or Photoshop Lightroom. On Linux/Unix, use darktable, which is open-source, cross-platform, and free.

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. To resize PNG images you can use our Image Resizer tool.
