I tried it and immediately fell in love! It was so easy to use! After a couple conversions I bought the guys a cup of coffee. A couple more and decided this was too good to abuse! I joined! My life is so much easier!Tillie
I had a huge, problematic file to convert that couldn't go through the usual automated conversion process. The Zamzar team responded quickly to my request for help, and they took the extra steps needed to do it manually.PDinSF

A very useful and professional site. The service is easy to use and the administrators are helpful and courteous.David Shelton
It’s my first time using it. I had some complications doing it. I’m not very good at this. But I wrote to the company and I had a lot of help. I’m satisfied with customer service and with the app.Ana Suárez

Great for when you need a lot of conversions in a short time. You have directly access and can even put the subscription on for just a month.Sabina Calis
Great thanks to you all for helping me to get the OLD files converted correctly. 20 years, quite a long time, reviewing the files brings much memory to me. That's the best gift I received last year. Thank you all again.Jiunn-Ru Lai
Fantastic service! My mom's computer died and she has 1000+ Word Perfect files she wants to keep for some reason. Since Word Perfect is basically dead, I decided to convert all her files. Zamzar's converter was perfect.Aron Boyette

CR2 Image Format CR2 Converter
A CR2 file format also goes by its full name which is Canon Raw Image File and as the name implies it is a raw image file that has been created by a Canon digital camera.
A CR2 file, like other Raw image files, is a file that has not undergone any processing or compression meaning the image data has been stored in a way that mirrors exactly what was captured by the cameras sensor. This means that the file is incredibly crisp and high quality but also large in size. Raw image files, like the CR2 file, are used by photographers when printing because they often want the highest quality print they can get therefore they use the sharpest picture available.
For the ordinary user, CR2 files tend to be converted to more accessible image file types like the JPG meaning they undergo some compression and there’s some loss of quality.
CR2 files are easily opened and can be opened by Photoshop, Microsoft Photos, Apple Photos and Preview.
JPG Image Format JPG Converter
The JPG file is also sometimes referred to as a JPEG and when talking in conversation it is often referred to as a “Jay….Peg”. It has been around now for decades and it’s popularity has endured. It is a compressed image format that still provided excellent picture quality but at a fraction of the size of say a BMP format. For many cameras it is the default file type and many sites on the Web use JPG’s because they aid the page load speed given they’re small in size. A JPG is a universal format that is able to be opened by almost any device, OS or picture application.
A JPG uses something called lossy compression which is to say that the compression comes at a cost, namely the quality of the picture is less in a JPG compared with a RAW file. Having said that, JPG’s are popular because the overall quality degradation of the image to the human eye is barely noticeable.

You can easily view CR2 files by converting them to JPG using Zamzar’s free converter tool.
