What is RAW?
RAW image file format is a generic name for all images generated by professional digital cameras. It contains unaltered, uncompressed “raw” image data as captured by a digital camera's sensor. There are dozens of raw formats in use by different models of digital equipment.
How to open and view a RAW image?
Unlike standardized JPEG or TIFF file formats, there is no one standard for RAW. That is why, more specialized software may be required to open and view raw files. This complicated software is usually quite expensive and require installation on your desktop computer. If you need to open and convert just a couple of RAW images into JPEG, a much easier way is to take advantage of a free online converter, such as raw.pics.io. It’s super easy tool that works right in your browser. It doesn’t require registration or installation and it is super easy to use.
RAW pros and cons
RAW is an uncompressed file format that captures all the data from the camera sensor when you take a photo. No information is compressed and lost, so the resulting image is of much higher quality than JPEG with the same resolution. So, if you are fond of photography, you’d better shoot RAW rather than let your camera automatically process the image in JPEG for you. As for the disadvantages of using RAW images, you have to bear in mind that you need to have special software installed on your desktop computer in order to edit and convert RAW files. This is an extra stumbling block in the photo-processing workflow in comparison with standardized out-of-camera JPEGs. Besides, RAW files are usually much heavier and much less transferrable than their JPEG counterparts, which is another disadvantage you have to consider.
