ARW Image Format ARW Converter
ARWs are raw image files taken by Sony digital cameras. The name ARW is short for (Sony) Alpha Raw image file. Raw images are lossless, and they are the original picture captured by a digital camera’s sensor. They’re sometimes called digital negatives, like the film strips in traditional cameras. You can then take these raw images and process/edit them to bring out the best qualities. While you can change your camera settings to shoot directly into a format like JPG, most people choose to keep the RAW setting as it offers much higher quality and more potential for editing.
As Sony is one of the biggest camera brands, ARW files will open in most photo viewers and editors, including Adobe Photoshop and Corel PaintShop Pro. As raw image files can be very large, many people convert them into lossy compressed formats like JPG or PNG to share photos by email or post them on websites or social media.
JPG Image Format JPG Converter
JPG, or JPEG, is one of the most widely used digital image formats. JPG is a universal format which can be opened by almost all image-viewing or -editing programs, by web browsers, and by certain other apps, and they’re supported by most devices. JPGs are 2D pixel-based ‘raster’ images, which makes them better for photographs or scans, rather than digital illustrations which are often better as ‘vector’ images. Many cameras, smartphones, and basic photo or drawing programs will automatically save into JPG format. However, you can usually adjust settings to save into other formats if needed.
JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group, which is the name of the committee that standardised the format. JPG is a ‘lossy’ format, meaning that it is compressed to save storage space and make it easier to share. This compression can affect quality, but this loss of quality isn’t noticeable to most users.
How to convert a ARW to a JPG file?
- 1. Choose the ARW file that you want to convert.
- 2. Select JPG as the the format you want to convert your ARW file to.
