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.png
CategoryImage File
DescriptionPNG pronounced ping is a format for storing bitmapped (raster) images on computers. It was created originally to replace the GIF file format when it was announced that the companies who created the GIF format wanted royalties. PNG uses indexed colors and lossless compression (like a .GIF file), but without those copyright limitations; it cannot be animated like a GIF image.

Technical DetailsPNG images are in many ways better than .GIF as they also include an 8-bit transparency channel, which allows the colors in the image to fade from opaque to transparent; GIF images only support fully opaque or fully transparent pixels. PNG supports palettes of 24-bit RGB colors, RGB images or greyscale or RGB images. PNG was intended to be able to transfer images on the Internet, not professional graphics, and so does not support other colour spaces (such as CMYK).
