Can't Open or View RAW Images on a Computer

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

We recommend using either the Image Data Converter or the Imaging Edge software to view RAW images on your computer. You can develop and save your photos to common file formats, like JPEG and TIFF, with these programs.

Other software titles, like Adobe® Photoshop® or Lightroom®, can also display RAW images. A minimum plug-in version is required depending on your camera. Check the supported camera table on the software support site  for details.

For computers with Windows® operating systems, a RAW driver is available that will allow RAW photos to open and display in Windows Explorer or Windows Photo Gallery in the same way as JPEG files. You can download the driver from our Support website:
