Can RAW image files be printed with a computer printer or digital photo printer?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

A RAW image file needs to be converted into a JPEG image before it can be printed. Since a RAW file is an unprocessed image, it needs to first be processed into a printable format. Use the supplied Image Data Converter software to convert the RAW files to JPEG before attempting to print.


  • RAW image files do not appear when the camera is connected with a printer using PictBridge™ technology.
  • When photos are shot with the camera in the RAW+JPEG mode, the corresponding JPEG images can be printed.
