Convert RW2 to PSD 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.

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.
