RAW File Format

Raw File Format (bitmap)

RAW is an image file format used by many high-end and professional digital cameras. RAW files are considered to be the best form of image file, since it does not process the picture, leaving total control of the editing to the user. RAW file size is much larger that .JPEG files, but is slightly smaller than .TIF files. RAW image files can be edited by Adobe Photoshop and Corel Paintshop Pro. RAW image files can be converted to .JPEG or .TIF by using ReaConverter.

MIME: image/raw, image/x-raw
