File extension.raw
CategoryImage File
DescriptionThe RAW file format contains untouched raw pixel information that comes straight from sensors of a digital camera. In digital photography it is the equivalent of a negative from traditional film-based photography. Digital Cameras process the RAW file by changing it to a full colour JPEG or TIFF image file that is stored on a memory card for a camera, but it is usually possible to retain the original RAW file too. Generally as the RAW file comes straight from the sensor this gives photographers more control over how the final JPEG or TIFF image is displayed.

There is no single RAW format. Digital camera manufacturers have each developed their own proprietary (often undocumented) formats, often changing the format from one camera model to the next. Several major manufacturers, including Canon, Sony and Nikon encrypt elements of the file to prevent 3rd party tools from accessing them.

Technical DetailsRAW files are made up of 12 or sometimes 14 bits compared to JPEG which is only made up of 8 bits. This provides for better image quality since any calculations used to generate the pixel values (often described as RGB) can be performed on the base data. This does however mean that RAW file sizes are often between two and six times large than standard JPEG images.

File extension.bmp
CategoryImage File
DescriptionBMP is a standard image file format which was historically used by computers running the Windows operating system. The format is more commonly know as Bitmap files. The term bitmap was originally coined in computer programming to refer to a map of bits. Historically when you saved an image on your home PC you might have saved it as a .bhp file, this is becoming less common with .jpeg the preferred image file format with the advent of digital cameras.

Technical DetailsBitmap files are housed in a device-independent bitmap (DIB) format. The term device independent means that the bitmap specifies pixel color in a form independent of the method used by a display to represent color. This enables Windows to show the bitmap on any type of display device - such as your monitor.
