When nothing needs to be installed to work with a file and what you see doesn’t depend on the platform, file format becomes ubiquitous. PDF is a nice example: once support for this format was added to browsers it became the dominating format for digital documents.
We’re making the same with raw images. Moreover, our service is free.
What is CR2?
CR2 is a RAW image file created with the help of Canon digital camera. The image is saved in a format based on TIFF specification. CR2 files store uncompressed image data the way it was captured by the digital camera.
How to open and view a CR2 file?
Like many other RAW images, CR2 files cannot be opened without having a specialized software installed on your computer. Usually this software is quite expensive and cumbersome. So, a much more efficient way to open and view your CR2 images is to use raw.pics.io. This online service is very easy to use and does not require installation. You can easily open, view and convert your CR2 photos without limitations.
CR2 pros and cons
A great advantage of CR2 image files is that they are usually very high-quality. They contain a variety of uncompressed image data which was captured by your Canon digital camera at the moment of shooting, e.g. white balance, exposure, etc. This data can be post-processed, which means that it can be adjusted with the help of image-editing software programs and online converter raw.pics.io in particular. One of the disadvantages of CR2 images is that they are usually very heavy. They are 2 to 6 times bigger than similar JPG files, and take up a lot of space in your computer memory.
