What is a .CRW file?

crw file icon

CRW files are images captured by various Canon digital cameras. The files store raw image data exactly how it was captured by the Charged Coupled Device (CCD), which is a sensor on the camera. CRW 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 encounter a CRW file. You might receive a CRW image from a friend or co-worker who uses a Canon digital camera. You may also download a CRW file from an image-sharing website. Whatever the case may be, File Viewer Plus is a great tool for opening and editing CRW images. You can also convert them to one of several more common image formats.
