About CRW Files

.crw Icon

A .crw file is a Canon Raw digital camera raw image. Raw images contain uncompressed, unprocessed data directly from a digital camera's sensor. The extra data allows photographers to make higher-quality edits to a digital photo by adjusting brightness, contrast, and color.

CRW files can be viewed by many image viewers, as well as the software included with Canon digital cameras. Adjustments to CRW images can be made using image editing software like Adobe Photoshop. CRW files can be converted into other, more widely-compatible image formats to share with other people. Saving one as a JPEG (.jpg) will use lossy compression to make the file size much smaller, with a little image quality loss. Lossless image formats, like TIFF (.tif) and PNG (.png), will preserve the image quality at a larger file size.
