How to Convert CR2, RAW, or NEF to JPG
If you are the lucky owner of a professional-grade camera, you are sure to face the problem of opening and working with RAW files. Depending on the camera manufacturer, RAW files may use different names and extensions, with the most popular being CR2 (Canon) and NEF (Nikon). RAW images retain all the information recorded by the camera’s sensor, which makes for large files that are not easy to work with. Additionally, the majority of image-viewing and editing programs don’t support these files.
So, if you want to view, store and edit your RAW pictures properly, you will probably need to convert them to a more flexible format, like JPEG (JPG). The easiest way to do this is to use Movavi Video Converter. This powerful software program can quickly and accurately convert all of your RAW files to JPEG without losing quality from the original pictures. The fast batch conversion process is ideal for bulk photo transfers.
