What is a .ARW file?

arw file icon

Sony digital cameras store raw images as ARW files. These images are often captured by professional photographers 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 they can also be more accurately edited than compressed images.

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