What is an .ARW file?

ARW files are raw images captured by Sony Alpha digital cameras. Professional photographers with Sony Alpha cameras often work with ARW files because they save captured data in an uncompressed format, which maintains the highest image quality. Because the ARW images are stored in an uncompressed format, users can more accurately edit them than compressed images.

Even if you do not own a Sony digital camera, you may still encounter an ARW file. For example, you may download it from a photo-sharing website or receive an ARW photo from a colleague or friend. You can use File Viewer Plus to view and edit ARW images or convert them to one of several more common image formats, such as JPEG or PNG.
