What is a .CR2 file?

CR2 files are raw images captured by various Canon digital cameras. These files store data how it was captured by the Charged Coupled Device (CCD), which is a sensor on the camera, resulting in high-quality images and large file sizes. Professional photographers often prefer working with RAW images since they can more accurately edit them than compressed images.

Even if you are not a Canon photographer, you may still acquire a CR2 file. You might receive a CR2 image from a friend or colleague or download it from an image-sharing website. Regardless of the reason, File Viewer Plus is an excellent tool for viewing, editing, and converting CR2 images.
