An ARW file has the full name of Sony Alpha Raw image file and, as the full name suggests, an ARW file is a raw image file. ARW file formats are created by Sony digital cameras and they are files that have not been compressed or processed in any way. This means that typically their file size is very large, but their quality is exceptional and so photographers tend to use raw image files like ARW files for printing pictures. The file itself contains image detail that is not typically visible in many image editors.

ARW file formats tend to be converted into more accessible image file types like JPG or PNG, and therefore go through some compression and lose some of their sharpness. As Sony has released more and more digital cameras, the ARW file format has become more common and is now a more popular file format than it used to be.

ARW files can be opened with Corel PaintShop Pro, Microsoft Photos and Apple Photos.
