What is a .CR2 file?

cr2 file icon

Various Canon digital cameras capture and store raw images as CR2 files. These files store data exactly how it was captured by the Charged Coupled Device (CCD), which is a sensor on the camera. CR2 files are typically large in size since they are saved in an uncompressed format in order to maintain the highest image quality. Professional photographers often prefer working with RAW images since they can be more accurately edited 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 download it from an image-sharing website. Whatever the case may be, File Viewer Plus is a great tool for opening and editing CR2 images. You can also convert them to one of several more common image formats.
