What is NEF?

NEF is an abbreviation that stands for Nikon Electronic Format RAW Image. A photo with a NEF extension is a raw photo captured by a Nikon digital camera. This means that the data is saved in an uncompressed format, exactly as it was captured by the camera's sensor.

How to open and view a NEF file?

Similarly to many other RAW image file, NEF photos can not be easily opened and views on a usual desktop computer or a mobile device. Normally, in order to open, view, and even more so to edit and convert a NEF file, you have to have specialized professional software installed on your computer, which is usually quite pricey. A smart alternative is to use a free online resizer and converter raw.pics.io. It doesn’t require registration, and you don’t have to download and install it on your device.

NEF pros and cons

NEF format is great, because it contains so much more metadata about your file (e.g. white balance, temperature, etc.), that and JPEG could possibly hold. NEF keeps each and every detail of the image as it was captured by the camera’s sensors, meaning that there is no compression or loss of quality whatsoever. However, it also has some important disadvantages. In the first place, NEF files are much bigger to store than their JPEG counterparts with the same resolution. Besides, you’ll need to buy and install special software in order to open, view, and convert your NEF files, unless you take advantage of the free online converter raw.pics.io.
