Identifying RAW Images

RAW images are images that have had very little or no processing added to them. Basically, these are the images directly supplied from the digital camera’s image sensor. These images are called RAW because they cannot be printed as is. They need to be edited first. Further, these images are displayed at the full resolution. This makes them very large images to work with, and they take up a lot of space on memory cards and computers.

There is no one RAW image extension. It all depends on the type of camera that is being used. Generally, however, the RAW format of cameras is based on the TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) file format. RAW images are especially important to professional photographers, since they allow them to see exactly what the camera captured. These images also provide the clearest images, and they are easier to blow up without losing clarity.
