RAW images

RAW is the name given to an image file type that records image data captured by the camera's image sensor without any processing. When using JPEG images, conventionally used with digital cameras, if you repeatedly edit and save the images, the image data or image quality will deteriorate. In contrast, when using RAW images, you can avoid any deterioration in image data or image quality if you use software for RAW images after importing RAW images to the computer.

How to convert and save RAW images

Most image-editing software cannot display RAW images, so some processing is required to open them. "Processing" means converting the RAW images to an appropriate file type such as JPEG so that the file can be manipulated on the computer.


This application is exclusively for Windows Vista and Windows XP. Follow the procedures below to convert and save RAW images.

1. Start Digital Photo Professional.

2. Select a RAW image to convert and adjust the image settings as necessary.

3. From the [File] menu, select [Convert and save].

4. When the [Convert and save] dialog box appears, specify the file name, file destination, and image type, and then click the [Save].

5. The selected RAW image will be converted and saved in the specified file type.

Refer to the Instruction Manual for Windows supplied with your camera for more information about Digital Photo Professional.
