RAW is a file type that gives the photographer more control over photo editing. RAW is considered a digital negative, where the default JPEG file type has already been processed a bit. RAW requires special software to open, however, while JPEG is more universal.

Different Camera Companies make different RAW files:

  • Adobe: .DNG
  • Canon: .CR2
  • Nikon: .NEF
  • Olympus: .ORF
