What is a cr2 file and how do I open a cr2 file?

A CR2 file is a raw camera image created by a Canon digital camera. It stores uncompressed image data exactly as it was captured by the camera, which can be adjusted for white balance and exposure using an image-editing software program. CR2 files are saved in a format based on the TIFF specification. These files are extremely high quality, and are the very best when it comes to editing. However, very few programs can open them. Adobe Photoshop can open them, as will Windows if you download the codec. You will need to look for and download the Canon RAW Codec 1.2.

CR2 Files can be converted into JPEG format once the need to adjust the RAW image file is no longer needed. CR2 files are quite large files. You can also download and install a CR2 Converter. Most are free converters for CR2 (Canon RAW version 2) images, it can convert your *.cr2 or *.crw image files to common image format, such as JPEG/JPG, GIF, BMP, BMP or TIFF format images. These applications can usually support batch conversion, so you can add multiple digital photos at once, and convert them together.
